Privacy and Data Security

Privacy issues are a major focus of Congress, state legislatures, government agencies, state Attorneys General, the media, industry, and consumers.

The rules governing privacy and data security are rapidly changing — from looming comprehensive federal legislation; to a patchwork of federal and state laws, regulations and guidance; to expanding industry association requirements and guidelines.

Federal and state authorities continue to remain laser-focused on protecting consumers’ privacy and security online, offline, and in the mobile environment. While nearly any company that financially benefits from the collection or use of consumer personal data is a potential target, understanding the particular practices that may be considered as unlawful, misleading, or deceptive can be challenging.

To help navigate that task, we provide a brief overview of key considerations when implementing privacy and data security practices in your company.
