Panel Discussion: Cybersecurity and Privacy | White & Case LLP International Law Firm, Global Law Practice

Panel Discussion: Cybersecurity and Privacy

Some have suggested that "data is the new oil." The truth of this statement cannot be overestimated considering how new applications for Big Data, AI and IoT have stimulated the development of new products and services. But concerns over the ownership of personal data and its uses are emerging throughout the world. The General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union (GDPR) , which will come into effect in May, 2018, sets new standards for compliance, creating in some cases, tensions with the privacy regimes in other jurisdictions. Information systems within companies and financial institutions are under attack on a daily basis creating new challenges for managers of global enterprises. This panel will consider the best practices for protecting personal information and the integrity of digital systems while making room for the innovation promised by new technologies.
