Cybercrime for the Trademark Practitioner- Data Security and Privacy Issues

October 19-30, 2015
Various US cities


For law firms and their clients, data security and privacy issues are a rapidly growing top-level concern.  Although a trademark practitioner may not be on the front lines during a data breach, it is increasingly important for us to have familiarity with these critical issues.  Not only because we may be called upon to advise clients, but because we have our own duty to safeguard our client’s information.  This roundtable will offer an update of important recent developments in the privacy and data security field, with a focus on legal and regulatory issues, including:

  • Data Security for your own practice 
  • FTC Enforcement Activity
  • Implications of Third Circuit’s Decision in FTC v. Wyndham (Aug. 24, 2015)
  • Evolving Data Breach Notification Statutes (State v. Federal)
  • Emerging risks
  • Privacy 101
  • Why should trademark attorneys care?
