On Friday, June 14, Cooley’s cyber/data/privacy practice will be hosting an event focused on the use of data in the development of products and services in our New York office.

The intense focus on privacy in the US and globally has raised pressure on businesses that use personal data to create innovative products and services, such as analytics, AI, blockchain, IoT, digital health, edtech, insurtech, fintech, enterprise software, threat intelligence, fraud prevention, clinical trials and other applications.

This program will focus on how companies can leverage personal data towards innovation, while respecting consumer and business customer expectations, embracing fairness and transparency, and balancing legal requirements with the enforcement climate and reputational risks.

Nicholas Johnston, editor in chief at Axios, will deliver the keynote address, discussing the media’s intense focus on privacy and information security.
