Ryan Sulkin’s session, "Cybersecurity Compliance Trends in 2019 - Why be concerned?" will discuss the following:

Over the last six months and into the next six months of this current Congress, there has been an increase in federal and state legislative activity surrounding consumer data privacy and protection. Meanwhile, the FTC has been busy in the background, testifying before house and senate subcommittees, to ask for more enforcement authority and the right to impose civil penalties. Whether all 50 states enact a consumer data privacy law or whether the federal government does so - and preempts them all - ultimately the FTC will likely remain the primary enforcement agency.  Learn, from experts, about some basic steps that all in-house counsel can start taking to make their compliance program ready. Also discuss the most pressing developments from the perspective of legal risk and how to mitigate it. And, you will learn key takeaways for how to operationalize the new requirements to meet business objectives.
