Pittsburgh attorney Matthew H. Meade, a shareholder and co-chair of Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney's Data Security and Privacy Group, will serve as faculty at an upcoming CLE event presented by Practising Law Institute (PLI). The 11th annual Institute on Privacy and Data Security Law program will take place June 21 and 22, 2010, at PLI's New York Center in New York City.

Meade will join John B. Kennedy from Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP to present "State Law: Defining the Duty to Secure Personal Data." The two will cover a wide range of topics, including:

  • Trends in state privacy and security legislation
  • Making sense of laws regulating data security, data destruction, SSNs, and credit card data
  • The Massachusetts regulations: Anomaly or mainstream?
  • Defining the duty to provide security: Is Massachusetts the new California?
  • How to develop a compliant comprehensive information security program
  • Prospects for uniform state data security laws
In addition to presenting, Meade also contributed an article to the event's course book titled, "The Evolving Landscape Of Healthcare Data Security: A Review Of Recent Developments Impacting Privacy In Healthcare."  

PLI's annual Institute on Privacy and Data Security Law focuses on critical issues of information privacy, security and data protection faced by all companies. The Internet and other evolving information technologies, wired and wireless, have prompted the development of powerful tools for the collection, processing, storage and use of personal information. These trends create numerous issues regarding limitations on corporate rights to use that information and obligations to protect it from a variety of new risks and vulnerabilities. Legislators, regulators and the courts are rapidly developing new law and compliance obligations to address the privacy and security implications of the information economy. This annual conference focuses on these developments with the goal of keeping attorneys and other privacy professionals informed and up-to-date in this complex and dynamic area of laws and regulations.

PLI's live programs are approved in all states that require mandatory continuing legal education for attorneys. To learn more about this upcoming program, click here.
