ARLINGTON, Va., Jan. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Bloomberg Law today announced that it would be hosting two live, complimentary events featuring privacy experts from corporations, law firms, academia, and the federal government focusing on key issues in the year ahead. The Washington, D.C. event, on upcoming privacy compliance challenges in the U.S. and EU, will be held at the offices of Bloomberg Government on Wednesday, February 3 from 8:00 to 11:00 a.m. The San Francisco event is centered around the impacts of privacy trends on high tech businesses and takes place from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 18 at the offices of Bloomberg L.P.

"We are excited to assemble some of the leading experts from both coasts for events which will provide attendees valuable insights into the evolving privacy and data security landscape," said Alex Butler, Vice President and General Manager of IP, Privacy & Data Security, and Tech & Telecom at Bloomberg Law. "At both events, we will provide a near-real time discussion of the anticipated EU-U.S. safe harbor deal that we have reported may occur early next week. And given the pace of change in these arenas, privacy professionals will benefit from the guidance on those issues and trends that bear watching in the year ahead."
The Washington, D.C. event centers on risks and trends in the U.S. and Europe and will help attendees navigate the new compliance landscape. Speakers will highlight the significant data protection changes in the EU, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation, and the latest privacy and cybersecurity developments here in the United States such as the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act.
