Class Content


This course is designed to introduce students to key privacy and data security considerations they are likely to encounter in their technology transactions practice.  The course begins by defining privacy and data security key terms and policy objectives, as well as the types of personal data processed in connection with technology agreements. The course then summarizes key U.S. and international privacy and data security laws. Next, the course identifies how attorneys can ensure data protection agreements (DPAs) comply with relevant privacy and data security laws.


Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify key privacy and data security considerations relevant to technology transactions;
  • Articulate the legal principles underlying privacy and data security laws, including individuals’ rights to privacy and entities’ obligations to protect personal data;
  • Develop awareness of rapidly evolving federal, state, and international privacy and data security laws governing technology transactions, and the types of personal data processing activities they regulate, including collection, use, and disclosure;
  • Summarize practical aspects involved in complying with privacy and data security laws relevant to technology transactions, and possible consequences for failing to comply; and
  • Review, analyze, and make recommendations regarding common privacy and data security provisions in technology agreements.

Simulation Exercise

Participants will be asked to review and propose revisions to a DPA from 2018 (i.e. that preceded the implementation of the GDPR and the CCPA) to ensure it adequately protects the client in compliance with recent privacy and data security regulations. Students will be asked to identify and explain: (1) the relevant provision(s); (2) any revisions, deletions, or additions the participant would make to the identified provisions; (3) any additional information needed to fully respond; and (4) any other conforming edits or additional documents needed to ensure the client is adequately protected.

CLE Credit

2 CLE Credits is available for each course.
