The transformation to a work from home/work from anywhere model has become the new normal and even after the pandemic ends, many expect that model to continue. This accelerated transition has forced companies to embrace virtual technologies without much forethought. Along with opportunities and flexibility, this change has ignited a set of new risks. And, the evolving legal landscape makes identifying and mitigating those risks even more challenging.

In this presentation, Vinson & Elkins partners Devika Kornbacher and Jessica Heim will be joined by Lily Fang, Senior Director of Privacy at Juniper Networks, to discuss the key privacy challenges implicated in our modern virtual world and share how companies can tackle these critical developments without hindering their success in this accelerated digital transition. The program will include discussion of the following topics:

  • True meanings of and differences between cybersecurity and data privacy
  • The myriad of data privacy issues presented by the virtual workspace, including the risks involved for the company and management
  • Overview of evolving compliance landscape through a virtual workspace lens
    • State data protection laws such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) and Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act (VCDPA)
    • International regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Personal Information Security Specification (China)
  • Practical tips on how companies can increase compliance in their data processing interactions and resulting benefits in a virtual world
    • Elements of a comprehensive information security program, including mobile device considerations
