It has become increasingly important to create a foolproof privacy roadmap for your organization. Privacy compliance may be the largest challenges that GCs have to face, so it’s essential to put programs into place and create a culture of collaboration where the whole organization is aligned on privacy policies. With the fear of litigation increasing, GCs need to be prepared to respond and have a plan of attack.

This program was recorded as part of ALM & Corporate Counsel's Annual General Counsel Conference Midwest on June 14th, 2022.
