Sections And Committees


The newly-created ISBA Privacy and Information Security Section held its first meeting at the Chicago Regional Office on October 17, 2017. The meeting kicked off with President Hon. Russell Hartigan delivering remarks to the section before moving to member introductions, mission statement discussion, and business items.

The 35-member section, initially proposed by Ari Scharg, partner at Edelson PC in Chicago and section chair, and approved by the ISBA Board of Governors earlier this year, was created in recognition that the field of privacy law is evolving at an exponential rate. Its purpose is to serve as a comprehensive resource for lawyers who practice in or are interested in the privacy and information security space to learn about information sharing practices. It will also provide a forum to discuss global developments and emerging technologies that will disrupt current business practices; learn best practices and debate issues; and review, monitor, and propose relevant legislation.
