Data Security & Privacy

Overview

ICLE’s Data Security and Privacy Program seeks to identify an appropriate framework for regulating the flow of data and information in the digital age. As firms contemplate new uses for data and new opportunities for data exchange, it is important that regulation not create a legal environment in which valuable products are inefficiently delayed, degraded, or abandoned, while also ensuring that regulations are effective and efficient. ICLE scholars examine the uncertainty and fundamental tension that currently exist in the law between liability for privacy harms and innovation around data.
