This course addresses the law of privacy and personal data protection under two leading, but quite different, legal frameworks. The year 2018 is a pivotal year in which the world’s most comprehensive privacy law, the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), becomes effective. In this course, we will review privacy fundamentals – principles, risks, and harms; the U.S. legal framework, including consumer, financial, and health privacy; the GDPR and the forthcoming EU ePrivacy Regulation; and challenges posed by the evolution of digital data technology, including data aggregation, analytics, and the Internet of Things.
