Emerging Data Security Laws: An Innovation Opportunity

Comcast Labs Connect: Security by the Schuylkill
Event Details
April 2019
1:10 PM - 1:40 PM ET

Eighteen states now have implemented data security laws requiring that companies implement reasonable data security. The FTC also uses reasonableness as the standard for data security. But what does this abstract concept or reasonableness mean in practice?

Phil Yannella, Practice Leader of Ballard Spahr's Privacy and Data Security Group, will address what reasonable data security means under state and federal law, exploring existing legal standards and projecting, based on 20 years of litigation experience, how the issue of "reasonable" data security is likely to be addressed by U.S. courts.

Mr. Yannella also will explore the potential technology-focused solutions that Comcast and similar companies can use to meet these new legal standards and shape the security ecosystem.
