18 Apr 2024 Webinar: California United States

In 2023, Washington’s legislature passed the My Health My Data Act (MHMD Act), ostensibly to protect “consumer health data” in response to the US Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. But the MHMD Act applies more broadly than it first appears and is arguably one of the most comprehensive and stringent privacy laws in the US. The MHMD Act further complicates the already byzantine US-patchwork approach to privacy. It applies to data that may not generally be considered health data and to organizations whose core business may have nothing to do with healthcare.

During this session, we’ll discuss the scope and requirements of the MHMD Act, as well as noncompliance risks – including a private right of action. We’ll also touch upon other similar US state laws that followed enactment of the MHMD Act. Cooley lawyers Andrew Epstein and Kristin Marshall will lead this foundational presentation to help participants design risk-mitigation strategies in their compliance journey.

12 Dec 2024 Webinar: California United States

Companies are understandably keen to harness the transformative power of artificial intelligence (AI) by incorporating it into their business processes and consumer and enterprise offerings. The speed of innovation in this area presents possible risks to individuals’ privacy rights – in particular, those whose personal data may be used as part of the AI training dataset. Governments and regulators are playing catch-up. The European Union has reached political agreement on the EU AI Act, and President Joe Biden issued an executive order establishing standards for AI safety and security. In an uncertain and rapidly evolving regulatory environment, what can companies do to protect themselves? This session will explore the legal risks of using personal data to train AI models and practical strategies to mitigate those risks – including alternatives to using personal data.
