Program Description

Patricia Wyrod, seasoned Silicon Valley technology attorney, is joined by the General Counsel of Glint.com, Marc Pappalardo, and the Deputy Legal Counsel of Patreon.com, Priya Sanger, to discuss practical tips for GDPR compliance by US companies.   Our in-house attorney speakers represent two of the fastest growing technology companies in San Francisco, with $185M in venture financing between them. Their prior roles include data privacy positions with Big Data companies Google and Silver Spring Networks.

This is an information-packed, dynamic discussion and we assume that listeners have some introductory knowledge of the GDPR.  The speakers will share war stories and practical tips for negotiating technology contracts with customers and vendors where the parties are required to share personal data in order to meet their business objectives. We will identify topics where the GDPR does not provide specific requirements for compliance but instead outlines best practices. How do experienced technology attorneys navigate these new legal concepts, which sometimes are not clearly stated in the GDPR, in the real world? 

Course Objectives

At the end of this session, participants will be better able to identify areas where their US company clients are not compliant with the GDPR and understand what actions they can take to lessen or avoid the risk of not protecting the rights and freedoms of EU data subjects.
