Fifth Annual Sidley Privacy and Cybersecurity Roundtable

We held our 5th Annual Privacy and Cybersecurity Roundtable on May 1, in Washington, D.C.  The event featured the Chair of the European Data Protection Board Andrea Jelinek and FTC Commissioner Noah Phillips.  Other government speakers represented the White House, UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office, and staff members from the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives.  Other distinguished panelists included Cam Kerry of Brookings and Jane Horvath from Apple.  The speakers addressed privacy and cybersecurity enforcement in the U.S. and EU, Brexit, Online Harms and the prospects for federal privacy legislation.  The insightful program was followed by a competition between the sausage-making (and brewing) achievements of leading privacy jurisdictions such as Brussels, California, Washington, D.C. and China (representing a privacy continuum!). Sidley also commemorated “20 Years of CyberLaw at Sidley” – two decades since the founding of today’s Privacy and Cybersecurity practice. We look forward to continuing to thrive and serve our clients. We hope to see you at next year’s Privacy and Cybersecurity Roundtable.

California, Here We Come: Getting Ready for the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018

WEBINAR
Wednesday, March 27, 2019 | 4:00 p.m. EDT / 1:00 p.m. PDT
CLE & CPE Credit Offered

When the California Consumer Privacy Act enters into force on January 1, 2020, it will grant consumers extensive new data rights and place a number of new obligations on companies – obligations that in some ways even exceed those imposed by the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This means that just about every company doing business in California or with Californians will need to take steps to comply with the CCPA, regardless of their GDPR status. Please join us for a discussion that identifies the key questions and issues companies should be considering before the CCPA enters into force on January 1, 2020. We’ll talk through the steps companies should take now to meet these new obligations.
