Fireside Chat with the Brazilian Data Protection Commissioner Miriam Wimmer

Brazil is the leading tech innovation hub in Latin America. It’s also a key market for Silicon Valley tech companies doing business with Brazilian companies and trying to sell products and services to Brazil’s 211 million consumers.

Prof. Wimmer will share her unique insights as the person tasked with overseeing the enforcement of the LGPD, explaining the wide-ranging implications of the new law for U.S companies and how to best prepare your clients for compliance with the law.
