Event Overview

This seminar will focus on data protection and security laws and issues, as addressed by excellent and distinguished speakers from around the world.  Specifically, the seminar will address global harmonization, cross-border transfers, recent developments in data protection and security laws, data security, Sarbanes Oxley vs. EU laws, data protection in South America and India, outsourcing and RFID, among other issues. How do you comply with so many inconsistent and often conflicting privacy laws, both domestically and internationally?  What are the best options for transferring personal data across borders?  How can you outsource without running afoul of applicable privacy laws?  What are the biggest threats to my data network?  How do I protect my data network?  What am I required to do if there is a breach in data security?  Are there any privacy issues if my Website is based in X country and I am collecting personal data from residents in Y country?  Please join us in Washington, DC to hear answers to these privacy and security questions and to learn much more about this increasingly relevant area of law.  Also, bring plenty of business cards, as you will have the opportunity to meet and network with many other professionals from around the world!
