New book: Managing Privacy in a Connected World

Our new privacy book Managing Privacy in a Connected World (co-authored with Elisa Henry) is out!

It deals with cutting-edge technologies (AI, blockchain, connected devices, IoT, targeted advertising) and new legal risks (digital consent, cyber, competition, online reputation, GDPR, privacy class actions, etc).

  • Chapter 3: Cyber Risks and M&A Transactions (Bradley Freedman)
  • Chapter 4: Privacy Class actions (Karine Chesnevert and Anne Merminod)
  • Chapter 5: Artificial Intelligence (Max Jarvie)
  • Chapter 6: Outsourcing (Katherine McNeill)
  • Chapter 7: Handling Personal Information in connection with Business Transactions (Bradley Freedman)
  • Chapter 8: Online Reputation (Eloïse Gratton and Lauren Phizicky)

  • Chapter 12: Internet of Things : Regulatory and Litigation Risks (François Joli-coeur and Edona Vila)
  • Chapter 13: Connected and Smart Devices (Ira Parghi and George Wray)

We would like to thank many colleagues for their extremely valuable research and insights. This includes: Andy Nagy (Chapter 2 on Global Risks and the General Data Protection Regulation and Chapter 9 on Distributed Ledger Technologies), Katia-Maria Medina (Chapter 5 on Artificial Intelligence and Chapter 8 on Online Reputation), Qian Hui Sun (Chapter 4 on Privacy Class Actions), Moshe Grunfeld, Carolyn Wong and Joshua Abaki (Chapter 11 on Privacy and Competition Law), and Daniel Milton (Chapter 13 dealing with Connected and Smart Devices).
