Jordan Fischer to present at TCCP Technical Roundtable

September 2 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am EDT

TECHNOLOGY ROUNDTABLE: BLOCKCHAIN AND DATA PROTECTION LAWS: CAN THEY CO-EXIST?

Blockchain is a buzzword in the technology community, promising to combine unforeseen computing power with the corresponding ability to confirm accuracy and legitimacy of transactions. The most common example of blockchain to the common user is cryptocurrency, the most popular of which is Bitcoin (or, at least, one of the most well-known). But, the use of blockchain goes beyond currency, and companies are exploring the use of blockchain in healthcare, finance, manufacturing, and many others.  

However, a looming question remains unanswered: how does blockchain comply with data protection laws? With the increasing emphasis on data privacy, and the adoption of data protection regulations, blockchain faces hurdles in complying with these regulatory obligations while allowing for the continued evolution of technology. Join Jordan Fischer, Esquire as she leads a roundtable discussion around the opportunities and challenges in creating and harnessing the benefits of blockchain technologies while avoiding legal liabilities in privacy and security. 

Jordan Fischer is the co-founder and managing partner at XPAN Law Group, a certified Women’s Business Enterprise (“WBE”) and Women Owned Small Business (“WOSB”). She focuses her practice on international data privacy and cybersecurity and cross-border data management, with a special emphasis in European Union data privacy regulations, the General Data Protection Regulation, and the California Consumer Privacy Act. Jordan has extensive experience in the intersection of law and technology.  Jordan is also teaching Professor of Law at the Drexel University, Thomas R. Kline School of Law.
