Data and privacy protection, particularly with the growing wave of state privacy laws and emerging technologies, continue to act as market disruptors that are re-defining the legal, regulatory and compliance landscape. 

Please join Ropes & Gray and the Association of Corporate Counsel (Northeast Chapter) for Corporate Counsel Institute (CCI), an interactive workshop that will examine the practical considerations that in-house counsel and compliance teams need to know about the constantly evolving nature and impact of privacy and emerging technologies on the way we do business, and how we relate to consumers, and manage risk.
