“Is Your Company under Threat? New Digital Risks & Computer Attacks: Forensic & Data Protection Aspects” (Conference in Medellin, Colombia, Nov. 16, 2011)

UPDATE (28 Nov. 2011): the video of the conference is now available at http://envivo.eafit.edu.co/EnvivoEafit/?p=10790.

Next week, I am organizing with two colleagues a conference in Medellin, Colombia, about the country’s recent data protection law entitled: “Is Your Company at Risk? New Digital Risks and Computer Attacks: Forensic and Data Protection Aspects – International Perspectives and the New Colombian Legislation”. Now that the Colombian Constitutional Court has approved the law, the time has come for the government to implement it into regulations, and for companies to start seriously considering how they will put in place the measures necessary to comply with the new rules.

In this conference, a forensic expert will talk about the threats Colombian companies are facing with the latest waves of cybercrimes, security breaches and computer attacks, the new risks they must address and the new challenges they must tackle.  A Colombian attorney will then cover the new law itself: its scope, the legal and regulatory privacy framework in Colombia, and the legal impact for companies based in the country.  In a third and last part, I will explain the position of the new law within the landscape of current or emerging data protection laws in Latin America, but then also in the more global context of legislative and public policy developments in the European Union and the United States, and what these developments mean for Colombia at a time when its government is drafting its new data protection regulatory framework.

Conference speakers are:

  • Álvaro Alexander Soto, Director, Digital Forensic & Security Lab, ASOTO Technology Group (forensic company with offices in Medellin and Bogota (Colombia), and Washington, D.C. (U.S.A.)),
  • Arean Velasco, Attorney, Velasco & Calle d’Alleman (a law firm with offices in Medellin, Colombia) and
  • Cédric Laurant, Principal, Cedric Laurant Consulting (consulting firm based in Brussels, Belgium)

Practical information: the conference will take place on 16 November 2011, 18:00-20:00 at the Universidad EAFIT, Carrera 49 N° 7 Sur – 50, Medellín (Colombia) – Bloque 38, Auditorio 125.  Language is Spanish.  Entrance is free but prior registration is required at info@cedriclaurant.com or at the conference venue.  More information appears in the flyer below.
