Why Illinois Privacy and Cyber Developments Matter Nationwide


For the last several years, state legislatures rather than Congress have taken the lead in enacting requirements for privacy and cybersecurity. Some of those state laws provide a model followed by other states, or even the federal government, and some serve as an effective national standard in their area of coverage. Illinois' landmark biometrics privacy law (BIPA) is currently impactful law for privacy litigation in the United States. Join members of Thompson Coburn’s Cybersecurity practice, including former President of the Illinois Senate John Cullerton, practice chair Jim Shreve, Chicago-based litigation partner Dave Duffy, and litigation associate Drew Moore to discuss BIPA and other Illinois privacy and cybersecurity laws and how their effects are being felt across the country. 

The live presentation of this webinar was approved for 1.0 hour of general CLE credit in California, Illinois, and Texas; 1.2 hours of general CLE credit in Missouri; and 1.0 hour of professional practice CLE credit in New York. CLE credit is no longer available for this recording.
