Technology now plays an increasingly complex role in the relationship between law enforcement, government, and citizen. Businesses are targeted by hacker and government alike for both IP and customer data, founders are pitted against their ethical constraints, and citizens are targeted by their governments during civil protests. Widespread government and corporate espionage, pilfered data from notable retailers, and law-enforcement intrusion into consumer electronics now comprise a sliver of the norm—an enormously complicated legal and technological landscape.
Join LaunchLM for a panel discussion featuring legal experts on data privacy, consumer privacy, and cross-border IP.
