A vast majority – 67 percent – of chief legal officers are anticipating the volume of privacy-related regulatory enforcement to increase in 2023, according to results from ACC’s 2023 CLO survey. This means legal professionals can expect additional pressure to manage the many risks their organization now faces, including compliance, cybersecurity and data protection issues.

As federal and state governments also look to increase data privacy and security regulations, legal pros and GCs need new ways to ensure compliance with these rules, while keeping an eye on possible litigation related to data breaches and other cyber concerns.

Join this webcast to learn from a panel of legal experts on how best to ensure compliance and mitigate risk to your organization. Further, you’ll learn how to establish defensible compliance to protect your organization in the event of a privacy breach, regulatory action or litigation. You will gain:

  • Insights from the 2023 ACC CLO survey, exploring how CLOs/GCs are shifting their focus to effectively manage data-related challenges.
  • Best practices for managing your company’s compliance, risks and data defensibly.
  • Critical updates on how data-governing laws are evolving and what that means for your organization.
