Data privacy rules around the world are changing at lightning speed. This talk covers the privacy and cybersecurity issues that affect most global organizations today. From protecting against cyber events to hot topics such as cloud computing and online behavioral advertising, the presentation provides an overview of data privacy and security issues from a U.S. and global perspective.

She was voted the world's leading privacy advisor in Computerworld's three most recent annual surveys and is ranked in "Band 1" by Chambers USA and Chambers Global for Privacy and Data Security. Sotto also is recognized as a leading lawyer in the 2012 edition of The Legal 500 United States. She was named among The National Law Journal's "100 Most Influential Lawyers" in 2013 and one of Ethisphere Magazine's 2012 "Attorneys Who Matter."

The University Computer Policy and Law Program's (UCPL) mission is to further information technologies ethics education. Typically, UCPL sponsors three or four speakers a semester for both small workshops and university lectures on topics such as digital copyright and libraries, Internet privacy and security, disability access technologies, logging and monitoring of network flow data, compliance strategies with relevant laws and campus IT policies and policy development. Complicated legal and policy issues require the expression of a variety of voices, perspectives and opinions. UCPL respects this diversity of opinion and desires to encourage campus community discussion and debate on these topics.
