On January 28 we celebrate Data Protection Day, the anniversary of the Council of Europe’s Convention 108, the first legally binding international law on data protection, which was signed on January 28, 1981. Data Protection Day is a chance for us to raise awareness about data protection and privacy, reflect on the progress made over the past four decades, and discuss pressing issues that the field is facing now.

To mark the occasion the Ropes & Gray will be releasing the first episode of our data, privacy and cybersecurity podcast, and we need your help! Send us your most difficult questions. What keeps you up at night? Will the US ever get a comprehensive federal privacy law—and what will it look like? Will there be a Schrems 3—and who will win? My co-host, Edward Machin, and I, along with other members of our team, will respond to as many of your questions and comments as possible.

All industries and topics are welcome. You can direct message us on LinkedIn or send an email to dataphiles@ropesgray.com. We look forward to hearing from you!
