Data Privacy in 2019: Look Back to Look Ahead

Wolters Kluwer Legal and Regulatory is proud to partner with Baker Botts

GDPR in force, the US in pieces - how can US companies manage all the moving parts?

Cynthia J. Cole, Special Counsel and Neil Coulson, Partner from Baker Botts join Wolters Kluwer Thought Leaders to explore the changing Privacy Landscape.

Key discussion topics include:

  • GDPR in practice: How are US companies adapting to GDPR and where is the EU focusing its efforts.
  • European horizon:  Review of the most important country specific legislation to date; the status of the  new e-privacy regulation and an update on the current position of the US/EU privacy shield.
  • US patchwork: A compare and contrast of California’s CCPA to GDPR and some crystal ball gazing: how will the US put the state and federal data privacy pieces together?
