The past year has seen dramatic changes in the areas of financial services, privacy, and information security. The events of the past year have had a significant effect on the way businesses operate and the compliance challenges they face.

Please join Kelley Drye's Consumer and Merchant Financial Services Practice with Brian Pedati, Senior Counsel for Sprint Nextel Corporation, as they host a panel discussion outlining hot topics in consumer financial services, from financial privacy to fair credit issues.

  • Emerging trends and developments for 2008
  • Heightened security under the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act and the Fair Credit Reporting Act
