Issues surrounding health privacy exploded in 2022, both at the federal and state levels. The Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v.

Our panel of health and privacy experts makes sense of these recent development and opine on the broader landscape of medical privacy.

Ransomware continues to be one of the fastest growing cyber-attacks, with an almost 13% rise this year according to the 2022 “Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report” – an increase as big as the last five years combined. Meanwhile, cybersecurity is also a key area of regulatory focus, with the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) seeking public comments in August 2022 on its proposed rulemaking on data security and the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) reopening the public comments period on its proposed security incident disclosure requirements for public companies in October 2022.

1.0 Hour of MCLE Credit

The privacy rights of children and teens have been front of mind for parents for some time, and regulators and lawmakers are catching up.  California recently passed a version of  the UK’s Age Appropriate Design Code and other states have introduced similar bills; the FTC has stepped up COPPA enforcement (including most recently in the gaming space) and issued several policy statements around protecting kids’ privacy; and several children’s privacy bills were advanced in the most recent session of Congress.  Our experts will address these developments and discuss how to navigate in this area of increased regulatory scrutiny and risk.

Employee privacy issues are talk of the town (or, rather, the state) as California employers are now required to provide full CCPA rights to workforce members. In addition, new state laws are requiring additional disclosures relating to employee surveillance and monitoring, and other new laws are governing how employers use automated decision tools. Our panelists discuss the convergence of employment and privacy law, new and emerging employee privacy rights, and how companies can prepare to comply with these new rights.

1.0 Hour of MCLE Credit

Focus on the “metaverse” and the development of immersive tech will only increase in 2023, with the planned introduction of Apple’s long-awaited AR and VR products, developments at Meta, and continued expansion of platforms like Roblox that are already bringing users into virtual spaces.  As these technologies proliferate, regulatory scrutiny will undoubtedly increase and privacy issues are expected to be front and center.  Our privacy experts have been swimming in the metaverse and virtual reality waters for some time and will walk us through the top privacy issues and regulatory concerns in this area and how they are being addressed.

1.0 Hour of MCLE Ethics Credit
