The Sedona Conference Working Group 11 Annual Meeting 2018


March 19, 2018 - March 20, 2018
Charlotte, NC
The Sedona Conference Working Group
on Data Security and Privacy Liability (WG11)
2018 Annual Meeting

The Ballantyne Hotel & Lodge
Charlotte, North Carolina

The 2018 Annual Meeting of Working Group 11 will be held at The Ballantyne Hotel & Lodge in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Monday-Tuesday, March 19-20, 2018. A welcome reception will be held on the evening of Sunday, March 18, from 6-8 pm.

The meeting's main focus will be on updated work product in need of WG11 member review and comment, including:

  • Privilege in the data security litigation context
  • Law firm data security
  • Data security and privacy issues in civil litigation

These publications are moving towards the pre-publication stage - we anticipate they will soon be published for public comment. This will likely be the last opportunity for member review and comment prior to publication.

In addition, the meeting will feature a government agency roundtable. Other sessions will include dialogue on the data security and privacy legal issues - and exploration of consensus-based solutions - surrounding biometric data privacy, artificial intelligence and the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

We have obtained a very favorable room rate for WG11 members of $259 per night, plus tax. This favorable room rate is available for three nights preceding and three nights following the meeting, subject to availability. Our room block expires on February 23, 2018, so please register soon while rooms are available. Complete hotel reservation details will be provided with your meeting registration confirmation.
