From Enforcement to Regulation: Legislative Trends for the Tech Industry

New laws in Europe and California are forcing tech companies to reassess their content or risk big fines. Now, the industry anticipates that more states will enact increasingly tough restrictions. Will there be a shift to more federal legislation that would pre-empt state laws?

Manatt has been closely monitoring the latest changes in this legal environment. Members of the consumer protection, California state government and federal government teams will present a webinar on:

  • Overview of prior case law including early legislation to recent data breaches
  • State legislative activity covering data breach notification laws, California state bills on privacy, IoT and net neutrality
  • Background, current developments and industry movement from the federal perspective

Richard Lawson, Partner, Consumer Protection
Thomas McMorrow, Partner, California State Government and Regulatory Policy
June Langston DeHart, Partner, Federal Government Affairs and Public Policy

Thursday, February 14, 2019
