Staying current in an evolving cybersecurity and privacy landscape

Cybersecurity has once again been named one of the hottest practice areas for the year and is projected to continue to be an area with seismic activity in 2020. Recent years have seen significant legislative activity on all levels of government including the passage of the California Consumer Privacy Act, which came into effect at the start of this year, and the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation, which became effective in 2018, among several other new laws. In the coming year, additional states may follow California’s lead in enacting their own data privacy laws, pressure will likely continue to mount for Congress to enact a national privacy law, and lawmakers are expected to focus on protecting biometric data with regulations on facial recognition technology.

In this quickly evolving and complex legal landscape for cybersecurity and privacy, practitioners need access to the latest coverage and the ability to efficiently stay up to date on the latest issues and trends in practice, including litigation, regulatory and legislative coverage, compliance guidance, risks and emerging threats in the market.
