Shipman & Goodwin attorney William Roberts will be joined by attorney Marco Mello Cunha, from the Brazilian firm, Tess Advogados, as they discuss data privacy and security issues and analyze global trends in Brazil and the United States, two of the world’s top ten economic leaders.  Today’s businesses collect, transfer and store a wide range of data on a daily basis. These records often contain vast amounts of sensitive and personal information, which, if lost or misused, would create significant business risk. To be successful in the modern environment, businesses need to know how to use, protect and transfer their data in an efficient and compliant manner.

Topics include:

  • An overview of data privacy laws in Brazil and the United States (including Brazil’s new general data protection law which will become effective in 2020)
  • Understanding global trends and cross-border transfer of data
  • Taking a proactive approach to privacy data security issues

Glenn Cunningham, Shipman & Goodwin Partner and Chair of the Board of Directors of Interlaw, will provide an introduction to the program and how the Interlaw relationship allows a global network of member firms to offer clients high-quality legal advice via a single point of contact.
