Global Privacy & Cybersecurity Resource Center

Now more than ever, organizations must be focused on the privacy and security of the personal data they hold. Businesses in nearly all industries–from healthcare to financial institutions and from high-tech to brick-and-mortar retailers–are increasingly accelerating their digital transformation into Big Data players. At the same time, an increasingly complex landscape of US and international data privacy laws leaves a growing web of compliance uncertainties. The rapid shift to remote work due to the COVID-19 global pandemic has also created a ripe opportunity for cybercriminal actors to strike, leaving businesses vulnerable to expensive ransomware and other damaging cyberattacks.

McDermott’s premier Global Privacy & Cybersecurity team leads clients through the complex—and often unanticipated—regulatory, compliance and transactional challenges that govern their valuable data assets. Combining deep experience operating within highly regulated environments with a practical business-focused approach to navigating the rapidly evolving data privacy environment, we help clients develop creative solutions to regulatory obstacles and leverage their valuable data assets to drive change and innovation.

UNTANGLING THE COMPLEX WEB OF STATE AND FEDERAL PRIVACY LAWS

October 27, 2021

Since California enacted the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) there’s been a new version of keeping up with the Joneses – and it’s happening in state capitals across the United States. As the federal government takes a back seat to the development of consumer privacy law, states are rushing to fill the gap with a kaleidoscope of different laws, rules and regulations. The result can be a headache-inducing series of potential risks and operational challenges for businesses to assess.

Join us for a panel discussion that will help make sense of the changing national privacy landscape and the litany of proposed and newly enacted state privacy laws.
