Fordham Law & Information Society Symposium

Ninth Law & Information Society Symposium
Fordham CLIP Symposium – Solving Privacy Around the World (May 13, 2015)
Fordham Law School
New York
May 13, 2015
9:00 a.m. – 6:30 p.m.

Trends in the global processing of data, developments in new technologies, privacy enforcement actions and government surveillance put international privacy at the center of the global law and policy agenda. Government regulators, policymakers, legal experts, and industry players need to find solutions to cross-border conflicts and to the issues presented by innovative technologies. This conference seeks to create a robust, but informal dialog that will explore possible solutions to current questions arising from the international legal framework, infrastructure architecture and commercial practices. The conference will use a unique format. Each panel will start with a short presentation on the technological and business context to set the stage. The panel will be an informal, moderated roundtable discussion with a select group of experts followed by a question and answer session from the audience.
