Service providers have to navigate an ever-changing global landscape to determine what user data may be properly disclosed to law enforcement. Your company may be headquartered in one country, with servers in other countries, and your users could be anywhere – so what do you need to ask your technical team before evaluating the legal questions? Then, how do you make the legal and policy determinations when so much of this law is in flux? This webinar will address two hot topics, providing an overview of the issues related to the disclosure of users’ geolocation data and the ongoing Microsoft v. United States case (regarding a U.S. search warrant for user content stored on Microsoft’s servers in Ireland) and offer insights about provider best practices.
Regulators at a growing number of state and federal agencies, including the FTC, SEC, and the California Attorney General’s office, are requiring companies to implement “reasonable” security measures to protect customer and company data. However, much to the frustration of organizations seeking to comply with the United States’ patchwork of security laws, regulations, and guidance, no one definition of “reasonable” security exists. This webinar will provide a brief overview of the broad continuum of security laws and standards in the U.S. and the potential risks of having inadequate security. We will then discuss how companies can triage security projects to prioritize those that will most effectively reduce risk.
Getting a court to direct a case to arbitration is no small task. Courts can, and often do, decline to enforce arbitration provisions for a variety of reasons: the user didn’t assent to the underlying agreement, the provision was not conspicuous enough, too onerous or one-sided, and so on. On top of that, courts often take different–and sometimes seemingly inconsistent–approaches to evaluating arbitration provisions. This webinar will review recent case law regarding arbitration provisions, and discuss best practices for obtaining contractual assent to online terms of service. We will also discuss how to craft an enforceable arbitration provision and address several other salient issues relating to arbitration provisions, such as who decides whether such a provision is enforceable.
Internet of Things. SmartTVs. Ransomware. Privacy Shield. Drones. This year proved another dynamic one in the privacy and security space. What issues do we expect to see in 2017? This webinar will highlight some key issues that we expect will garner attention in the upcoming year. They will include the FTC’s priorities for policy-making and enforcement actions, the aftermath of the Privacy Shield, and the evolving concept of “personal information.” We also will discuss the impact we are seeing of the Supreme Court’s Spokeo decision on future litigation and some potential considerations for use of drone data.
