Privacy and Information Security Committee



Welcome to the Privacy and Information Security Committee homepage. The field of privacy and data security law is extremely dynamic because of the quick pace of technological and business innovation. Our goal is to provide our members with timely updates and analysis about key developments in privacy and data security. We monitor and report on technology, business practices, legislation, regulatory and self-regulatory initiatives, and litigation involving privacy and data security issues. In addition, we offer a variety of educational programming throughout the year. We hope that you will find our Committee resources helpful in your practice to:
