Data Night: The Lawyer’s Role in Data Privacy & E-Commerce

Wired & Laced

Gone shopping lately? Who’s using the data you left behind? Whether it’s a friendly bot that’s asked about your birthday, a criminal who’s bought your credit card number, or a watch that’s watching your every move, the potential privacy problems are ever-increasing – and we’re all wearing our digital hearts on our sleeves.

In the rapidly evolving world of big data, native advertising, and repeated consumer data breaches, what is the lawyer’s role? Is mere compliance with formal standards enough? Or should lawyers be the soul of the machine when it comes to data privacy, e-commerce, and social commerce?

Please join us for a panel discussion, “Data Night: The Lawyer’s Role in Data Privacy and E-Commerce.”
