This cartoon is about evolution of data breaches, which began to grab headlines back in 2005, thanks in large part to California’s data breach notification law — the first of such laws. Since that time, every state has passed breach notification laws, and there are breach notification laws sprouting up around the world. Every day, we hear of more and more data breaches . . . and they are getting larger and larger.
I hope that you can join us for the International Privacy+Security Forum (April 3-5, 2019 in Washington, DC).
The International Privacy+Security Forum is an annual sister event to the Privacy+Security Forum, an annual event held in October at George Washington University in Washington, DC. The Int’l Forum event focuses on privacy and security laws from around the world. The main feature of Forum events is that we have deep-dive sessions on topics. We attract highly seasoned professionals, and we encourage highly interactive sessions.
We will have 100+ speakers and about 40 sessions.
This cartoon is about data breach notification. All 50 states plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico now have data breach notification laws, and breach notification laws are spreading around the globe. And, as is often said in data security, it’s not whether a breach will happen, but when . . .
It is sad to say goodbye to Concurring Opinions, a law professor blog I co-founded in 2005. The blog began when a group of us (Dave Hoffman, Kaimi Wenger, Nate Oman, and me) who were blogging at PrawfsBlawg decided we wanted more autonomy in blog governance, so we founded Concurring Opinions. Over the years, we added many great permabloggers: Danielle Citron, Deven Desai, Frank Pasquale, Gerard Magliocca, Ronald K.L. Collins, Larry Cunningham, Naomi Cahn, Sarah Waldeck, Solangel Maldonado, Corey Yung, Jaya Ramji-Nogales, and others.
