Panel I

Recent Developments in Data Security

 2021 has been active year for developments in Data Security:

  • With the change to a new federal administration, data security seems to be gaining traction, as Congress and regulators focus on cybersecurity, misinformation campaigns, and Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.
  • Ransomware and cyber extortion continued to wreak havoc, with even the White House providing guidance for businesses to develop resilience.
  • Virginia and Colorado joined California in adopting consumer privacy laws, and other states tackled a variety of privacy and data security topics, like biometric privacy and improvements to data-breach notification standards.
  • Cross-Border data-transfer laws continue to create challenges as businesses navigate a post-Brexit Europe and China enacts a privacy law.
  • Businesses began transitioning workers back to in-office work, navigating the uncharted waters of hybrid options and vaccine mandates.
  • The DSBA Committee on Professional Ethics issued its first opinion in ten years to address issues surrounding remote work by Delaware attorneys.

How do these events affect Delaware lawyers and their clients? Come hear about the latest data privacy and security issues impacting Delaware lawyers and their clients. This panel will discuss recent developments in litigation, legislation and regulations relating to data security and privacy, with an emphasis on recent ethics guidance and incidents involving attorneys and law firms.

 Panel II

Recent Developments in E-Discovery

Come join this panel in discussing substantive developments in e-Discovery, as well as the potential impact of some “ripped from the headlines” discovery abuse stories, including:

  • What happens when lawyers “slip” discovery documents into a database without timely notifying opposing counsel?
  • Is the frequency of severe discovery abuse increasing, and what is the impact on lawyers and their clients?
  • What’s the latest guidance from Delaware courts on discovery protocols and discovery objections?
  • What are the most updated best practices from the Sedona Conference, and how might they affect your practice?

This panel will get you up-to-date with the latest e-Discovery developments, including recent court decisions and pending rule changes.
