Ian C. Ballon to Speak at International Association of Privacy Professionals Global Privacy Summit

LOS ANGELES – April 11, 2017 – Global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP’s Ian C. Ballon will be a panelist at the International Association of Privacy Professionals’ (IAPP) Global Privacy Summit, which is being held April 18-20 in Washington, D.C.

From 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 20, Ballon will be speaking on the Trends in U.S. Data Privacy, Security Breach, and TCPA panel. He will address trends in data privacy, security breach, and TCPA class action litigation. The presentation is intended to highlight not merely the state of the law but the trends that will determine what suits are filed in 2018, 2019, and beyond (and what companies should do to anticipate those trends). While this program will benefit even novices, it is intended to provide guidance to sophisticated CPOs and in-house counsel.

Ballon is co-chair of Greenberg Traurig’s Global Intellectual Property & Technology Practice and represents technology, media, and entertainment companies in intellectual property, internet, and mobile-related complex litigation, including the defense of data privacy, security breach, and TCPA class action suits.
