Panel 1
Recent Developments in Data Security and Privacy

2023 has been an active year for developments in Data Security and Privacy:
– At least 12 states have enacted comprehensive privacy laws, with most of them passing in 2023 and those already codified taking effect. Even Delaware’s legislature has joined the mix – will Governor Carney sign it into law?

– The states also have been busy passing laws tackling a variety of other privacy and data security topics, like Tik Tok bans, social media censorship, biometric privacy, use of AI, and improvements to data-breach notification standards.

– Ransomware and cyber extortion continue to wreak havoc, while data-breach and privacy lawsuits are setting new standards for protection of employment data, standing, damages, cyber-insurance coverage, and other issues.

– The FTC, SEC, and other federal government agencies work to expand their initiatives to encourage greater protection of personal data concerning health, children and other contexts.

– Cross-Border data-transfer laws might actually get easier with the approval of a new data transfer framework between the U.S. and the E.U.

– Businesses, including law firms, continue to work on finding the right fit and the most appropriate technology for remote, hybrid and in-office schedules.

 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

Artificial intelligence (“AI”) is in a nascent stage of development, but is already having a major impact on our lives in myriad ways. Chat GPT and other AI tools have only been publicly available for a short time but are changing the way data is analyzed and content is generated. AI is also presenting a host of novel legal issues. This panel will provide an introduction to AI and related legal and ethical issues and cover the following topics:

– What is AI?
– How does AI work?
– The different types of AI
– Legal issues related to the use of AI
– The ethical considerations of using AI in the law

The panel will include two experts in the field of AI. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss the implications of AI for the legal profession. The panel is intended for lawyers, law students, and legal professionals who want to learn more about AI and its potential impact on the practice of law.
