Compliance and Legal functions wrestle with an unprecedented level of issues ranging from data breaches to government investigations, to uncovering potential smoking guns within company e-mails. Yet these risk mitigation efforts are often under-funded, under-appreciated, and under-equipped to handle modern day challenges. And while compliance executives are trying to get their arms around the data they have, most of the media focuses on high profile breaches and technology mishaps.

“Big Data Collides with Big Compliance,” an exclusive, invitation-only event for general counsel and chief legal officers, is hosted by Dave Curran, global director, Risk & Compliance at Thomson Reuters, and offers a peer-to-peer forum to join industry experts in an off-the-record, real-world conversation. The event is Dec. 14 from 1-4:30 p.m. at The Googleplex in Mountain View, Calif.

The program features industry leaders: Andy Hinton, vice president, Ethics & Compliance, Google Inc.; Marcus Morissette, global privacy officer & privacy counsel, eBay; and DLA Piper partners Roy McDonald and Jeff Aronson.

Topics to be explored include:

  • Leading practices for addressing the “known knowns” of information – how do you find smoking guns?
  • How do Legal and Compliance functions work together productively, as well as with their business counterparts?
  • How to effectively balance data privacy and business needs
  • How to create, track and visualize meaningful data about data
  • How to make your case for more headcount and budget dollars
