A Proactive Approach to Privacy Law and Data Security Practices
Privacy concerns are omnipresent in all industries today, and the legal issues develop on a regular basis, getting more complex. The consequences of non-compliance can materially impact a company, from both a financial and reputation standpoint.
We advise clients on compliance with data privacy and cybersecurity requirements such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), the Gramm-Leach Bliley Act (GLBA), Controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography and Marketing Act (CAN-SPAM Act) laws, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA), New York’s SHIELD Act, NYS DFS 500, the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and state data breach notification laws. We have a particular experience with children’s privacy issues and has worked extensively with on educational technology firms and mobile app and game developers in connection with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), and numerous state law regarding education privacy. We have assisted numerous multinational companies with advice, planning and connections with GDPR and for data transfers to and from the United States to EU countries.
We work with companies facing data breaches, counseling them in the critical hours after an incident occurs, helping them understand and investigate the issues, and crafting an effective and appropriate notice program for affected individuals and government regulators. We also work with companies to anticipate and prepare for cybersecurity incidents before they occur, developing breach response plans to help prevent and mitigate future breaches.
