Elimination of Bias: How Surveillance Disproportionately Harms Marginalized Communities
1.0 elimination of bias credit applied for
Privacy is often an afterthought, and sacrificed in the name of efficiency, security, or profit. However, privacy is both a critical individual right, particularly to marginalized groups disproportionately subjected to surveillance by private and governmental actors, and a fundamental component of a well-functioning democracy. This panel will discuss surveillance regimes’ disparate harms to those rendered most vulnerable based on their racial, sexual, immigration, religious, or socio-economic status, while also foregrounding conceptions of privacy that may help society better appreciate its role in enhancing equality and democracy. The panel will enhance – and sometimes may challenge – understandings of privacy and the implications for marginalized communities, helping attendees give the most complete, informed policy and practice advice to clients who collect, use, and share people’s data.

How to Create Effective Data Mapping and Data Retention Programs

Organizations struggle with keeping track of what information they have, where it is, how long they need to keep it, and when they can and should delete it. Organizations can address these challenges through the development of a modern, compliant, and easier-to-execute records retention schedule and data map. Join us as we discuss how to create, and keep up with, an effective data map and records retention schedule, so you can begin putting together your Information Governance program.

The New California, Virginia and Colorado Laws – What’s Changed, What’s the Same and What To Do Now

Hands down California, Virginia and Colorado are the talk of the town when it comes to state-law changes in 2021 with significant impact on data privacy and security rights and obligations. But when it comes to applying the new laws coming into effect in 2023, what exactly has changed and what hasn’t? This practical session answers these questions via succinct distillation of what responsive changes clients may need to make in the following areas:

  • Privacy notices
  • Individual rights’ requests 
  • Internal risk assessments
  • Sensitive data issues
  • Contracts with service providers and others
  • Privacy training

– Maggie Lassack & Lisa J. Sotto

Artificial Intelligence: A Review of the Privacy Law Challenges Brought by the Growing Use of AI – Plus Practical Guidance

There is a measurable correlation between artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities and the data on which it is employed. Essentially, the greater the power/capability of the AI application that is used, the more likely the latent data value on which it is used tends to increase. This is because AI has an augmentation capability that exposes the latent value and reduces entropy. Cumulatively, the effect on privacy can be generally corrosive. This session identifies some of the key privacy challenges that use of AI creates and offers practical guidance for meeting those challenges. Topics will include:

  • Notice and consent for data collection, use, and processing;
  • Use of explainable AI (XAI) to mitigate harm; and
  • Contracting best practices.

How to Systematize Risk Assessments as Part of a Robust Data Security Program

From financial institutions with customer information to businesses processing California consumers’ information, companies are under growing legal obligations to perform risk assessments to identify material threats to information they hold. This breakout session will explore how the changing legal landscape, including the FTC’s changes to the GLBA Safeguards Rule and the California Privacy Protection Agency’s forthcoming rulemaking, may influence contract terms and data security standards. In this context, we will assess practical approaches to risk assessments and threat modeling to support robust security programs for companies of all sizes.
– Michael Fuller & Laura Riposo VanDruff

North of the Border: Canadian Privacy Update

This breakout session addresses developments in Canadian federal and provincial privacy laws, with a focus on advising companies that conduct business in both the U.S. and Canada. The session will begin by covering the current federal and provincial Canadian privacy law regime and then will discuss such developments including: (i) Quebec Bill 64, (ii) Ontario private sector privacy legislation, and (iii) Canadian federal private sector privacy law reform. This breakout session will provide a U.S. privacy law comparative perspective, including how to navigate both U.S. and Canadian federal, state, and provincial privacy laws (for example, data breach notifications and privacy policies) and developments to watch for in the coming year.
– Melissa J. Krasnow & Wendy Mee

103
Navigating Privacy Risk in Managing COVID Testing, Vaccinations, and Exposure Mitigation

For employers trying to determine how to deal with COVID-19, a clear course of action remains elusive and presents businesses with new and continuing challenges as they consider workplace safety requirements. This session will provide the most up-to-date information on the latest employment and privacy law and regulatory developments to consider when mitigating risk to your employees, customers, and others. Our employment and privacy law experts will discuss new developments related to these issues, including: what steps employers should take to implement a testing program; updates on guidelines related to COVID-19 vaccinations for the workforce, including notice, authorization, confidentiality and response; competing privacy and data security concerns, including the scope of medical and other information employers can collect, retain, store, and access from employees, customers, and facility visitors alike; notice and consent obligations; and legal risks associated with data breaches.

Consumer and Data Subject Access Requests – Do Your Clients Have Adequate Compliance Plans in Place?

EU and U.S. privacy laws provide individuals with rights to access, correct, and delete their personal information collected by businesses and organizations. Though these types of rights have existed in particular sectors for some time, the California Consumer Privacy Act was the first U.S. law of general applicability. Now, laws in Virginia and Colorado are set to follow suit. This session will outline the types of rights arising under both EU and U.S. state privacy laws and the compliance obligations that follow. Panelists will also provide practical tips for implementing effective rights response programs.
– Ron De Jesus, Julian B. Flamant & Lena Ghamrawi
– Kenesa Ahmad (moderator)

Measuring Cybersecurity’s and Privacy’s Impact on ESG Assessments
Global social unrest and concern for climate change has led to unprecedented government, shareholder, investor, consumer, employee, and business-leader pressure on company ESG performance that demonstrates commitment to the social good. And for many of our clients, the cybersecurity and privacy component of their ESG index makes up an impactful share of their overall score, topping 10% in some cases. In this session, you’ll get practical insights into:

  • The business case for linking privacy to ESG;
  • How ESG rating agencies evaluate and score privacy and cybersecurity programs; and
  • Specific ways to maximize privacy and cybersecurity’s contributions to ESG.

Managing Incident Responses – Navigating the Technical, Strategic and Legal Issues in a Rapidly Changing Environment
Data breaches are becoming an everyday occurrence (and lawyers are not exempt!). Highly practical, this session is keyed to applying principles to practice in common breach scenarios. With perspectives from the FBI, DOJ, an in-house privacy officer and two attorneys who advise clients on cybersecurity issues, this session will include an overview of the structure and scope of breach notification laws (typically at the state level), how the evolution of breaches, including especially new variants of ransomware, challenge the norms previously applied to interpreting those laws, and recent enhancements of federal support that may facilitate clawbacks if immediate action is taken.  Attendees will gain a high-level understanding of the process for evaluating whether and when disclosure to impacted individuals and potentially state Attorneys General must be made, and common pitfalls and challenges as one attempts to navigate the fog of a breach.

Data-Processing Agreements – Simplifying and Standardizing Across Jurisdictions

Organizations across all jurisdictions and industries need to develop practical solutions for data-processing agreements (DPAs) that can be implemented through the data-processing chain. For countries or U.S. states that don’t require or reward an expansion of the new EU Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs), companies can deploy concise, consolidated data-processing terms that address descriptive national or local statutory requirements, ideally without repetition and unnecessary complexities. In this session, Lothar Determann will: 

  • Provide concrete guidance for determining when using the new SCCs aren’t required and aren’t the best choice for some, or all, of an organization’s data-processing agreements;
  • Identify and analyze samples of concise, consolidated data-processing terms for DPAs that aren’t using the SCC framework; and 
  • Share fundamental principles an organization can follow to take a compliance-focused, pragmatic approach to DPA simplification and standardization.

Cookies and Third-Party Tracking – Answers to the Most Common Questions

Third-party cookies are used by websites other than the one you are currently visiting to track users between websites and to display more relevant ads between websites.  However, pressure from regulators and consumers has led many within the tech industry to declare that third-party cookies (and the targeted ads fueled by them) will soon come to an end. Further, new laws and regulations effective in 2023, create civil and/or criminal penalties for those that fail to notify web users of the presence of cookies. These regulations also require website operators to let users know what information is being collected and to whom this information is shared, along with a way to opt out at any time. This session will provide answers to the most common questions currently being asked by consumers, advertisers, and marketers as we move into a new world without third-party cookies and tracking.
