When it comes to updates in the law or changes to the rules of civil procedure, attorneys should follow the resulting case law closely to understand the court’s interpretation and to build strategies and best practices around those rulings. It should be no different when it comes to regulatory compliance.
Compliance officers and in-house legal departments should be making efforts to stay abreast of how regulatory bodies are ruling, but with the rise of new laws around data retention and privacy, this isn’t as easy as it might seem.
In preparing for an upcoming webinar on the topic, I spoke with Ron Hedges, former United States Magistrate Judge for the District of New Jersey and current Senior Counsel at Dentons. He said, “The biggest challenge in compliance is keeping up with new laws and regulations and with new technologies. The latter can help with compliance and can also offer means to breach privacy and cybersecurity.”
Hanzo's Luminary Series was created to tackle big topics like these by engaging with industry leaders and tapping into their expertise. When it came to this topic, I knew Ron Hedges would be a perfect source of knowledge.
