Jonathan A. Beckham, Gretchen A. Ramos, CIPP/US, CIPP/EU, CIPM, and Jena M. Valdetero, CIPP/US, shareholders at global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP, spoke at the 2021 ACC Cybersecurity Summit which was held virtually March 2 – 4. Greenberg Traurig was also a sponsor of the summit.
This year’s virtual forum offered a unique way to stay ahead of the cyber curve, learn the latest trends and developments in the field, and discover strategies for addressing risk and response while providing the opportunity to network with subject matter experts from around the world.
On March 2 from 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. EST, Valdetero presented the educational session, “Employee Cybersecurity Training.” The session discussed how to train employees to identify and avoid risks while building training platforms that extend to externalities and non-employee threats. The session also focused on the technological methods that help reinforce good employee behavior while focusing on employee training and audit procedures to ensure good client practices both in theory and reality.
Beckham also presented on March 2, leading the pop-up session, “Cybersecurity & Corporate Governance,” from 3:30 p.m. – 3:50 p.m. EST.
On March 3, Ramos presented the session, “New Global Data Protection Laws,” from 12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. EST. The program focused on the data protection issues that organizations will be closely watching and/or planning for in 2021, including the CPRA, Virginia’s CDPA, the proposed privacy legislation in New York, Washington, Minnesota and Oklahoma, cross-border transfers of EU personal data in light of Schrems II and the recent EDPB draft guidance on supplementary measures, and adtech/cookie management issues.
