Winter 2014/15

New York Summit supported by Debevoise & Plimpton

The first in GC and The Legal 500’s Corporate Counsel Summit series, which took place in september in new york, combined innovative management theory and cutting-edge legal developments.

GC’s mission statement is to bring innovative business theory to in-house lawyers. The seminar began by covering the latest developments in data privacy and cyber security. The focus was the relationship between personal and corporate security, and best practice lessons we can transfer from one to the other. This was especially topical in the light of the recent well-publicised leaks of personal photos of celebrities stored in the cloud, as well as data leaks at Target and JP Morgan. Jeremy Feigelson and David Sarratt of Debevoise & Plimpton presented an insightful and pertinent workshop on the issues.
