We are proud to be sponsoring and participating in the Privacy + Security Forum Spring Academy 2021 taking place virtually.
Partner Alan Friel will join a panel sharing wins and losses on California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) preparedness, in retrospect, and apply those learnings to how to prepare for the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA), the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act (CDPA), the cookieless digital ecosystem and whatever curveball that is yet to present itself. Joining Alan will be Linda Trickey, Assistant General Counsel, Privacy & Security, Cox Communications, and David Manek, Senior Managing Director, Ankura. Their session, titled “CCPA Workshop,” is set for 10 a.m. EDT on Monday, May 24, 2021.
Their panel will provide insights and perspectives related to how to build and maintain an effective information governance program that will enable compliance with current and future data privacy laws and will address common challenges in doing so.
In addition, partner Elliot Golding will join a panel discussion on federal and state laws governing health information besides HIPAA. Elliot will present alongside Trinity Car, Associate General Counsel and Privacy Officer at eHealth, and Joanne Charles, Privacy & Regulatory Affairs Attorney at Microsoft. Their session, titled “Beyond HIPAA – Regulating Data in the Health Sector,” is set for 2 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, May 26, 2021.
The panel will not only cover what laws practitioners need to know, but also walk through hypothetical scenarios and provide practical tips and recommendations. Topics will include:
Research and data analytics (covering federal laws, such as the Common Rule, and state privacy laws, such as the CCPA and biometric laws)
Working with vulnerable populations, including children (subject to the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), etc.), and sensitive health information (mental health, substance use disorders, etc.)
Advertising and patient communication issues (subject to federal laws (such as CANSPAM and TCPA), state laws (such as CCPA) and industry standards (such as the Digital Advertising Alliance principles))
