This CLE course will provide business counsel with tactics for drafting and enforcing data privacy and security agreements in the wake of the ever-increasing incidence of data security breaches. The speakers will address contractual provisions for allocating and mitigating risk and compliance with respect to artificial intelligence and with key regulatory regimes including the CCPA, CPRA, and other recently passed state laws.


The amount of data businesses collect, new and evolving uses for data, and data privacy and security threats continue to grow exponentially. Companies have an increased urgency to negotiate reasonable, valid, and enforceable data privacy and security provisions in contracts with their vendors.

Recent high profile data security breaches demonstrate that any organization may experience a breach. Data breaches put trade secrets, confidential information, and the personal information of consumers and employees at risk--and expose businesses to liability. Sweeping laws like the CCPA, CPRA, EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework, and other recently passed state laws encourage businesses to implement robust privacy, data security, and risk allocation where personal data is stored, shared, or accessed.

Through carefully drafted data privacy and security provisions in agreements, counsel can help businesses allocate and mitigate the risks resulting from data security breaches. Other essential risk mitigation clauses include security measure standards, insurance, indemnity, and limitation of liability.

Listen as our panel of seasoned data privacy attorneys explains best practices for drafting data privacy and security provisions in vendor agreements. They will discuss evolving data privacy and security risks and specific clauses to allocate and mitigate risk and encourage vendor compliance.
