Tuesday, September 17, 2019 - 6:00pm

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) inspired the new California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).  Also, Congress is seriously exploring federal data protection legislation for the first time.  This program will cover the latest US and international security and privacy legal developments.  At the same time, advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence are raising concerns for data protection professionals.

Attorney Stephen Wu, a Silicon Valley Law Group shareholder, book author, and ISSA Journal author, will describe the latest compliance challenges posed by GDPR, CCPA, and new laws, as well as how these new laws apply to AI, Big Data, and the Internet of Things.  He will also cover the promise and threats of artificial intelligence, robotics, and autonomous and connected vehicles.  Takeaways will include strategies for managing data protection and related legal risks caused by these advanced technologies.
