Privacy + Security Forum Spring Academy 2024

Washington DC
Speaking Engagement

The Privacy + Security Academy's spring forum brings together seasoned thought leaders in privacy and security for rigorous deep-dive sessions that deliver practical takeaways. The event is designed for privacy and security professionals, chief information officers, attorneys, academics, experts from NGOs and thinks tanks, technologists and policymakers. WilmerHale is honored to be a sponsor of the event again this year.

On Thursday, May 9, WilmerHale Partner Kirk Nahra and Counsel Shannon Mercer will speak in a session titled “Key Developments in Health Data Protection and Cybersecurity” from 10:10–11:10 a.m. This session will analyze cyberattacks against healthcare providers – including ransomware attacks against hospitals in 2023; HHS key investigations and settlements; and the growing impact of state laws and health data outside of the ambit of HIPAA (and the complications of the gaps / exemptions / how those are playing out with new comprehensive privacy laws).

On Friday, May 10, WilmerHale Special Counsel Arianna Evers will lead a session titled “Pixel Audits: Understanding Legal Risks and Compliance Best Practices” from 10:10–11:10 a.m. This interactive session will cover legal risks and best practices for compliance reviews for online properties, and offer in-house, consultant, and outside counsel perspectives.
