Privacy and cybersecurity continue to change at breakneck speeds. From numerous state privacy laws enacted in the U.S. to rapid changes internationally, it is a dizzying time for privacy and cybersecurity lawyers. Layer on artificial intelligence, and it feels like our neural networks are ready to flash “tilt.” Come join us to hear about the latest privacy and cybersecurity developments and the key items to put on your 2024 roadmap.

Data Augmentation: U.S. Privacy and Cybersecurity Updates

8:35 am – 9:35 am CT
Legal, regulatory, and adtech changes abound. This panel will discuss the 17 new(ish) state privacy and health privacy laws, and updates needed for privacy policies, data processing agreements, and other compliance, including the five state privacy laws that apply to non-profits. We will also cover HIPAA-related updates and international data transfers to the U.S. We’ll discuss the major changes underway in the adtech world including cookies, analytics, and other types of trackers.

Diffusion Models: International Privacy Updates

9:40 am – 10:40 am CT
Privacy has hit the mainstream daily political news. We’ll discuss privacy and artificial intelligence updates from Europe, including the European Union’s new AI Act that will regulate the deployment of artificial intelligence models in the EU market. We’ll provide an update on China’s comprehensive privacy law PIPL and related laws and regulations. We will cover the recent Executive Order (14117) and the proposed rules implementing it, which will restrict and prohibit certain transfers of data from the U.S. to China and other countries. Finally, we’ll provide an overview of how to deal with fraudulent wire transfers that flow through Hong Kong banking systems and how, through quick action, funds can often be recovered!

Red Teaming: Handling New Cybersecurity Threats and Wiretapping, Video Privacy, and Related Litigation

10:45 am – 11:45 am CT
Ransomware attackers and cybercriminals have added artificial intelligence to their toolboxes. In fact, the threat landscape has dramatically increased for small to medium-sized companies because of easy availability of Ransomware as a Service (RaaS), voice cloning, and AI assistance in creating even more convincing phishing attacks. Class actions filed under the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act continue to proliferate, with the risk now at “annihilative liability” levels. Class actions and thousands of individual claims are being filed under wiretapping, video privacy, and other statutes created decades ago, which creative plaintiffs' lawyers are stretching to apply to modern-day technology. This panel will update you on current threats and practical steps you can take to shore up your cybersecurity program, comply with the SEC’s new incident reporting requirements, and protect your company from bad actors and litigation.
