Warner Norcross to Host Data Solutions Symposium in Grand Rapids

Warner Norcross + Judd LLP will host a Data Solutions Symposium on Wednesday, April 17 in Grand Rapids.

 
The half-day program will feature updates and best practices on eDiscovery, cybersecurity and privacy. Registration begins at 12:30 p.m. at the JW Marriott, 235 Louis St. NW, and the program wraps up after a cocktail reception beginning at 4:30 p.m.
 
“The number of privacy and information security laws continue to increase domestically and abroad,” said Jay Yelton, a Warner partner and co-chair of the Data Solutions Practice Group. “While the most restrictive laws have been at the international level, U.S. states — led by the state of California — are starting to pass laws with similar requirements, and U.S. businesses need to keep up with these changes.”
 
The program will open at 1 p.m. with a general session focused on “Complying with the California Consumer Privacy Act.” This session will provide an overview of the CCPA scheduled to go into effect next year to provide comprehensive consumer rights similar to those found in the EU's General Data Protection Regulation. The session will examine a number of case studies to identify how the rules apply to organizations that collect data about California residents. 
 
Attendees can then choose from breakout sessions in two tracks.
 
Track one:
 
  • “Cybersecurity & Privacy: Lessons Learned from Data Breaches." Breaches continue to plague companies and show no signs of slowing. Warner attorneys will discuss recent cases to examine whether companies could have done anything differently to avoid the breach and protect themselves from legal liability. 
  • “eDiscovery: Michigan's New Discovery Rules” focuses on the significant changes coming to Michigan's Civil Discovery Rules, including the scope of discovery, sanctions for spoliation, ESI conferences, plans and orders and mediation of discovery disputes via appointment of ESI. This session will look at all the impending changes and discuss their likely impact. 
 
Track two:
 
  • “Cybersecurity & Privacy: Responding to a Data Breach." Discovering that a breach has occurred can be overwhelming. Discussion will focus on best practices for responding, including actions that must be taken immediately and the right questions to ask to comprehend the full scope of your post-breach obligations. 
  • “eDiscovery Panel: Strategies for Avoiding Common eDiscovery Mistakes." Since early eDiscovery rules were first adopted, there have been literally thousands of court opinions interpreting the rules. Despite familiarity of the rules, and guidance from the courts, the same mistakes are frequently repeated. This panel will examine common mistakes and discuss best practices to avoid them.
