Rockey Interviewed by Legal Executive Institute

April 2016

San Francisco Partner Dan Rockey was the subject of an interview posted April 19 by Legal Executive Institute regarding his April 21 webcast: What In-House Counsel Need to Know about Data Privacy in the Sharing Economy. “I think the main takeaway is that the legal departments of sharing economy companies need to focus on building-in privacy by design. They need to start from a good framework and a good privacy policy, and they need to obviously appreciate that they’re going to be collecting massive amounts of data on an ongoing basis,” Rockey said. “In-house counsel will also want to make sure that the business side of the company is aware of these issues, and is integrated and working in cooperation with the legal department.” Click here to read the full interview.

Webinar: What In-House Counsel Need to Know about Data Privacy in the Sharing Economy

April 21, 2016 at 12 p.m. EDT 

Sharing Economy companies have unleashed new technologies to reduce barriers to economic participation, giving millions of would-be entrepreneurs the tools to share their time, vehicles, homes and other assets to help cover expenses. Many of these tools also give sharing economy companies access to sensitive personal data regarding their users, including GPS coordinates, driving records, criminal history information and more. However, because these industries tend to be highly regulated, many companies are required by regulation to collect and store this data beyond the period dictated by business necessity. Join San Francisco Partner Daniel Rockey as he discusses some of the key privacy issues facing sharing economy companies and strategies to reduce the legal risks inherent in collecting and storing sensitive personal data.
