As states enact new statutes regarding data privacy and consumer interactions while technology continues to make it easier for companies to do business all over the country, it is incumbent upon individual businesses to be aware of the evolving data privacy landscape to ensure compliance and understand how the requirements affect their media and marketing strategies. The new statutes and regulations impact how businesses market themselves, collect and use personal information, negotiate vendor contracts, and interact with existing and potential customers through websites and social media.

At this event, business law attorneys Kevan Lee Deckelmann, Elliot Brake, Chad W. Higgins, and Andrew Wells will provide a legal update on the progression of data privacy regulations and laws that will most likely impact every business, their marketing strategies, and how they interact with vendors and customers.
