In June 2020, Debevoise’s Data Strategy and Security practice group launched the Debevoise Data Blog, where we regularly publish our insights on developments and trends in cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, and privacy. In a recent ranking of legal technology blogs, the Debevoise Data Blog was ranked #9 (out of 45) based on traffic volume, social media followers, domain authority, and content freshness.
