Shook, Hardy & Bacon Miami Partner Al Saikali organizes and presents during the Second Annual South Florida Privacy and Data Security Law Summit on Tuesday, March 31 at the University of Miami. Saikali is also co-chair of the event.

Saikali, who co-chairs Shook’s Data Security and Data Privacy Practice, founded and organized last year’s inaugural summit to increase data privacy awareness in South Florida; a large number of healthcare organizations, financial institutions and multinational companies in South Florida collect, use, store, and dispose of sensitive customer information.

Saikali presents on the newest advances in privacy and data security law, including recent developments in lawyers’ ethical obligations in this area. He is joined by Shook Partner Phil Goldberg; Matthew Meade, Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC; and Christopher Dore, Edelson PC.

Saikali also moderates two panel events, including the lunch panel that features the Senior Assistant Attorney General for the State of Florida responsible for data privacy and data security enforcement issues; the Chief of Economic and Environmental Crimes Section from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Florida, Economic Crimes Division, who leads cybercrime prosecutions in South Florida; and a Special Agent in the U.S. Secret Service Electronic Crimes Task Force, who works with the private sector to respond to cyber attacks.
