The Four Seasons
At the Midyear meeting, WG11 aims to build upon the success of its inaugural annual meeting in New Orleans in late 2014, and the work of its first brainstorming groups and drafting teams.
Following the New Orleans meeting, the Steering Committee formed drafting teams to begin work on drafts of a Data Security Primer, a Data Privacy Primer, and a Commentary on Reasonable or Unreasonable Data Security Measures. The Steering Committee also created a new brainstorming group on International Issues in Data Security and Privacy Liability, to determine how WG11’s leading data security and privacy practitioners can practically address global issues in this evolving field. The drafting teams and the brainstorming group will release their work product for member review and comment at the Midyear meeting. The full Agenda and the dialogue leaders are shown below.
In addition, the dialogue leaders will seek your feedback and input at the meeting on the following subtopics, among others:
- Vendor Management
- Cyber Liability Insurance
- Federal Data Breach Notification Law
- Federal Cyber Information Sharing Act
- Quasi-Privacy Class Actions
- Unique Issues Relating to Class Actions
- Workplace Privacy
- Enforcement actions regarding privacy and data security
- How to respond to a data breach internationally
The meeting is limited to 80 participants, so register as soon as possible.
