The Impact of the Video Conferencing and Social Media Apps Boom (with Dominique Shelton Leipzig, Perkins Coie LLP, Los Angeles, California, USA)

Video conferencing and social media apps like Zoom, Houseparty, and TikTok have exploded in popularity during these times of global social distancing. While these apps have become much more popular among regular users, they also have attracted potential hackers, raising opportunities as well as risks to a brand-new scale and prompting some platforms to institute stronger security features. Will this surge in usage have a lasting impact on these companies in terms of value, brand reputation, diversification of services, available security features, or even future privacy regulations? In this episode, we discuss these issues with Dominique Shelton Leipzig, a partner in the Privacy & Data Security Group and co-chair of the Ad Tech Privacy & Data Management team at Perkins Cole LLP, Los Angeles, California, USA. Practicing intellectual property, media, and privacy law for over 25 years, she is a member of the board of the International Association of Privacy Professionals and the author of two landmark books on privacy and data for businesses.Every two weeks, on Tuesday, Brand & New gives the floor to inspiring individuals, with a 360-degree vision, to help brand owners, intellectual property lawyers, and marketing and finance professionals (and beyond!) stay curious and agile in an ever-evolving business environment.
