Privacy & Technology Law Section | LGPD – Brazil’s New Privacy Law CLE

Dear Privacy & Technology Law Section Members:

Please join us on Thursday, October 8th from 12 – 1 p.m. for a fascinating online program that will examine the LGPD – Brazil’s New Privacy Law .

Our Speakers are:

– Bernadete de Figueiredo Dias, Partner, CGM Advogados – Brazil
– Bruce Sarkisian, Privacy Counsel, The Coca-Cola Company
– Amanda Witt, Partner, Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP

This program will explore the Brazilian General Data Protection Law (LGPD), which was enacted in August, 2018 and was intended to be effective as of August 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Brazilian Executive branch issued a Provisional Measure 959/2020 in April 2020 which, among other matters, postponed the effective date of most of the LGPD provisions to May 2021. However, as it was provided through a provisional measure, this postponement had to be confirmed upon the passing of a law, or it would not be valid. The provisions of the provisional measure related to LGPD have been removed from the text of the law approved by Congress and, as a result, LGPD will be effective upon sanctioning of the new law by the Executive Branch or within 15 business days. This program will explore recent developments in privacy and data protection regulations in Brazil.

What you’ll takeaway:

– A brief overview of LGPD.
– An understanding of the unexpected changes to its effective date and how it affects companies doing business in Brazil.
– The role of the recently-created National Data Protection Agency.
– What to expect for the future in terms of the LGPD.
