    The trauma of a data breach, not to mention the hardships of litigation in the volatile areas of privacy and cybersecurity law, present challenges for even the most seasoned brand managers. While technology has enabled brand owners to exponentially expand their reach, it has also increased their exposure to liability, not only for data breaches but also for the mishandling of consumer data, which is regulated by an increasingly complex patchwork of privacy laws around the globe.

    The trauma of a data breach, not to mention the hardships of litigation in the volatile areas of privacy and cybersecurity law, present challenges for even the most seasoned brand managers. While technology has enabled brand owners to exponentially expand their reach, it has also increased their exposure to liability, not only for data breaches but also for the mishandling of consumer data, which is regulated by an increasingly complex patchwork of privacy laws around the globe.

    To dig into this topic that’s becoming more and more a part of our legal practice, INTA is delighted to provide a stellar panel of speakers: veteran IP and internet litigator Ian Ballon; Uber’s first Chief Privacy Officer and Associate General Counsel, Privacy & Cybersecurity, Ruby Zefo; and Airbnb’s Lead Counsel, Ann Staggs.

    Mr. Ballon will provide a survey of trends in data breaches, privacy and cybersecurity class action litigation, including cases brought under the 2018 California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).  Ms. Zefo and Ms. Staggs will share lessons learned, including the need to proactively protect brands from these threats to customer trust and brand loyalty. 

    Beyond dealing with sensational headlines and the court of public opinion, the program will provide strategies to help brands not only survive but thrive in the aftermath of a cybersecurity or privacy breach crisis.

    A three-part webcast series hosted by the TMAP Meeting Project Team.

    There is no doubt that the past year and a half has affected all of us both professionally and personally, as the response to COVID-19 has forced us to adjust and pivot in ways many of us had never experienced before. The trademark world and its legal professionals have not been immune to these changes and have been forced to adapt as well.

    These types of challenges are not limited to the COVID-19 global pandemic, as trademark professionals face change all the time—changes in trademark laws, swift business pivots, public relations nightmares, and social or political events. What does a shift created by one of these situations mean for the future? Will you be dancing to a different tune because what seemed like temporary changes are now here to stay?

    Join us for the three-part webcast series, Dancing to a Different Tune, where each webcast explores how organizations and their counsel adapt trademark activities and enforcement strategies when presented with unique situations that challenge their businesses and brands. Each webcast will focus on a distinct area of our lives and work that has been affected by recent changes: Technology, Brands, and People.

    Additionally, one week after each webcast, please join us for an Idea Exchange where we will continue the discussion and then connect with colleagues for some informal networking that will be held in Zoom breakout rooms. Each Idea Exchange will kick off with a Kahoot! trivia session that will revisit some of the issues discussed during the previous webcast and give the participants a chance to win some great prizes.

    As recurring lockdowns have forced companies to move a large part of their business operations online, challenges of enforcement in the online environment have become even more relevant. This session will take a detailed look at these challenges from both a proactive and reactive perspective.

    As recurring lockdowns have forced companies to move a large part of their business operations online, challenges of enforcement in the online environment have become even more relevant. This session will take a detailed look at these challenges from both a proactive and reactive perspective.

    Speakers will address the spike in e-commerce sales in recent years and how the resulting surge in counterfeits and trademark infringement has forced businesses to adapt online trademark enforcement strategies. Additionally, we will discuss how companies have addressed these issues using in-house measures, as well as with the aid of third-party providers. Special attention will be given to the role of online marketplaces and how they should, could, and already do assist brand owners in the defense of their brands.
