Understanding the Impact of Brazil's New Data Protection Laws and...

The new Brazilian data protection law, Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados Pessoais, went into effect in September 2020 and subsequently created a new independent data protection agency. Navigating and complying with the agency's new regulations will pose challenges to companies doing business in one of Latin America's leading financial centers.

Presented by Dechert LLP and Pinheiro Neto Advogados, this panel includes top experts in privacy and cybersecurity law, including the former Chief Privacy Officer of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in the Obama/Biden administration and head of Global Privacy Counseling at Dechert. The webinar will provide an overview of the current privacy and cybersecurity landscape, including lessons learned from implementation and enforcement of the GDPR and best practices for incident response, including how to plan for and handle the day your company becomes a cyber target. We'll cover the role of corporate boards, disclosure and best practices in incident response, as well as practical considerations for companies under the new Brazilian cybersecurity law data protection authority.
