Hyatt Regency Reston, 1800 Presidents Street, Reston, VA 20190
Over the past few years, privacy and cybersecurity litigation has increased exponentially and evolved dramatically, creating novel strategic decision points for practitioners throughout the litigation lifecycle. In addition to data breach-based claims, causes of action under BIPA, CPRA, GDPR, VPPA, CIPA and other privacy-focused statutes have dominated the class action space. New theories of harm are frequently emerging, some led by state attorneys general and federal and international regulators.
Practitioners must consider privilege and preservation issues unique to this domain well in advance of litigation. Cross-border discovery issues frequently arise. And practitioners often must contemplate novel applications of well-worn issues like standing, class certification, and settlement to ever-evolving fact patterns.
This Sedona Conference Institute program will kick off with a simulated tabletop exercise involving a cyber incident in which certain key players – IT, HR, inside and outside counsel, management, forensic investigators, regulators, and others – address the incident with an eye towards potential litigation. Over the next two days, a faculty of jurists, regulators, and leading practitioners in this domain will take deep dives into the issues raised in the tabletop and other emerging issues in data privacy and cybersecurity litigation, including:
- Internal investigations and audits
- Conducting discovery
- Privilege and ethical issues
- Insurance coverage
- Cross-border data transfers
- State, federal, and international regulations and enforcement
- Special considerations for privacy statute-based claims
The program will take place on April 13 and 14. There will be a welcome reception on the evening of April 12, from 5:30 - 7:30 pm (Eastern time).
A more detailed Agenda is below.
