Jenner & Block Partners David Bitkower and Kelly Hagedorn will examine implications of the newly passed Clarifying Lawful Overseas Use of Data Act, or CLOUD Act.  The act amends key aspects of US surveillance law and provides a framework for cross-border data access for law enforcement purposes.  Mr. Bitkower and Ms. Hagedorn will share their insight during a program that will focus on how the act will reshape how US and other law enforcement agencies can access cross-border data to conduct investigations.  Their panel is titled “US Warrants for Data in the aftermath of the CLOUD Act.” Sponsored by the Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS), the program will be held on April 4, 2018, from 9:30 to 11:30 am at the CSIS headquarters, 1616 Rhode Island Avenue in Washington, DC.

Mr. Bitkower is a member of the firm’s Investigation, Compliance and Defense Practice, as well as its Data Privacy and Cybersecurity Practice.   He is a former principal deputy assistant attorney general for the Criminal Division of the US Department of Justice, the second-highest ranking position in the division.  He co-authored a Client Alert about the new CLOUD Act, which can be read here.

Ms. Hagedorn is a partner in the firm’s London office and member of the Investigations, Compliance and Defense Practice. Clients in a broad range of sectors, including oil and gas, telecommunications and financial services, seek her counsel in regulatory investigations and other matters.
