"Tips for Defending Against Data Breach Litigation in the US and Abroad," Tuesday, July 9, 2024 7:30 AM – 8:30 AM PDT

A company that suffers a data breach must notify relevant regulatory authorities and all persons whose personal information or protected health information was disclosed. Plaintiffs lawyers monitor such notifications and reach out to all individuals who received a breach notification letter offering class representation. The class actions that follow include claims for negligence, negligence per se, breach of contract, breach of implied contract, invasion of privacy, violations of state unfair and deceptive trade practices act statutes, and violations of state privacy statutes, among others. Hear from a panel of outside and in-house counsel on strategies to best position your clients for potential litigation.

Learning Objectives:

Learn about UK regulatory litigation, that is, about defending enforcement proceedings before the UK data protection authority.
Develop your understanding of pre-litigation preparation for such proceedings, in particular regarding the instruction of forensic investigators, the scope of their reports, and the limits of privilege. (This takeaway will be comparative with the other jurisdictions being covered by the panel).
Develop your understanding of the role of document production and possible settlement discussion in proceedings before the UK data protection authority. (This takeaway will also be comparative with the other jurisdictions being covered by the panel, albeit that the proceedings under discussion in the other jurisdictions are generally before the courts and not regulators).
