Big Data and Disruptive Technology – Big Opportunities or Big Risks?

Latham's Technology Transactions lawyers discuss latest developments and how to ensure your business is protected and compliant, in this complimentary seminar.


Data is the new currency. Businesses around the world are finding new ways to create, manage, and exploit data though the adoption of disruptive technology like AI, IOT, Blockchain, and Autonomous Vehicles. However, as data increasingly becomes a key asset, it can also lead to significant liability.

Latham & Watkins invites you to a complimentary seminar on the latest developments and trends in Big Data and Disruptive Technology. Our global technology transaction specialists will discuss factors you should consider to ensure that your business is protected and remains compliant across multiple regulatory regimes, as businesses increasingly rely on the use of disruptive technology.

This seminar will be of interest to those who want to:

  • Successfully develop or invest in disruptive technology and understand more about the commercial and legal issues around its adoption, operation, or acquisition
  • Hear how the framework for regulating disruptive technology is evolving and what that means for businesses
  • Learn how to approach cross-border privacy compliance, including managing data localization and potential conflicts of laws
  • Hear from the front line, how regulators are enforcing the new data laws and learn what to do if you have a breach or non-compliance issue to minimize penalties
  • Take away our tips on how to structure your internal compliance framework to mitigate risk
