(50m) Despite all of the challenges in 2020, globally, there still remained an appetite for data protection legislation. Whether legislatures wanted to obtain recognition, or continue to be recognized, as an adequate jurisdiction for the purpose of international data transfers from the European Union, or provide greater protection for individual rights in the face of technological advances, a slew of legal developments loom on the horizon, and with them the threat of increased litigation. In this session, our expert panel will discuss the trends in global privacy legislation and their impact, including recent developments and predictions for 2021, to help you plan for coming changes as part of your privacy program development.
In this session you'll learn:
• An understanding of jurisdictions to watch for coming changes;
• Current trends in the nature of obligations being included in new legislation; and
• Insights into the potential for litigation arising from these developments.
