It’s fair to say that 2020 was a year of disruption. While some of these shifts were fairly predictable (like the launch of the U.S.’s most far-reaching data privacy law to date), more seismic and unforeseen disruptions (a global pandemic and the ensuing rush to work from home) forced abrupt changes in our day-to-day habits and exposed risks in how the General Counsel handles organizational data.

As we look ahead to 2021, our expert panel will review 6 data risks legal teams must protect against in 2021, including:

  • What data risks the general counsel must be aware of (data privacy laws, data breach, etc.)
  • Best practices for creating a comprehensive legal strategy to mitigate these growing data risks
  • Examples of how leading legal departments are leveraging technology to ensure defensibility and efficiency
