The Privacy Advisor Podcast

Apr 15, 2024

In tandem with privacy, cybersecurity law is rapidly evolving to meet the needs of an increasingly digitized and complex economy. To help practitioners keep up with this ever-changing space, the IAPP published the first edition of Cybersecurity Law Fundamentals in 2021. But there have been a lot of developments since then.

Cybersecurity Law Fundamentals author Jim Dempsey, lecturer at UC Berkeley Law School and senior policy advisor at Stanford Cyber Policy Center, brought on a co-author, John Carlin, partner at Paul Weiss and former Assistant Attorney General, to help with the new edition.

IAPP Editorial Director Jedidiah Bracy recently spoke with both Dempsey and Carlin about the latest trends in cybersecurity, including best practices in dealing with ransomware, the significance of the new SEC disclosure rule, cybersecurity provisions in state privacy laws, trends in FTC enforcement, the recent Biden Executive Order on preventing access to bulk sensitive personal data to countries of concern, and much more.

We even hear about the time Carlin briefed the U.S. president on the Sony Pictures hack.
