Partner Kenneth N. Rashbaum to Speak at the “Connecting Bridges and Borders: Company Collaboration in Today’s Competitive Market” Conference in Budapest, Hungary While Being Tapped to Draft the New Jersey Data Protection Bill

Ken Rashbaum will address data management regimes in the US, for the benefit of the European businesses, and data protection in Europe (GDPR) with regard to the potential for  international expansion of US business into central and eastern Europe at the “Connecting Bridges and Borders: Company Collaboration in Today’s Competitive Market” Conference in Budapest, Hungary on October 16th. Ken will speak on US state data protection laws and trends and the need for non-US companies to obtain advisors who can guide them through the regulatory thicket of 52 separate jurisdictions that have very different cybersecurity compliance regulations.

The final bill may serve as a model for states considering privacy and cybersecurity legislation, as similar laws in California, Colorado, Vermont, Illinois and regulations in New York have moved New Jersey legislators to take up data protection for New Jersey residents.
