The rise of technology has facilitated communications between businesses and consumers. However, the ease of accessibility in the digital age bring risk to consumer and companies alike. Businesses should be aware of the ever-changing climate in privacy law. Companies need solutions to protect their consumers and consumers need to protect their privacy. If you are a company seeking advice about implementing privacy policies to protect your consumers information and are interested in resolving issues or are just seeking to obtain information on the implications of a potential data breach, call I&O Law for solutions to your company’s data privacy needs.
At I&O Law, it is important for our clients to know how companies collect, use, and share personal data, how secure their data systems are, and how transparent they are about their data privacy and security practices. Any legal business entity is aware of how our economy is driven by data. With high-profile data breaches and data mining scandals, online privacy is a hot topic among legislatures, government regulators, consumer advocacy groups, and industry leaders. Privacy concerns also generate the attention of consumers.
Companies need to be vigilant about their data privacy and security policies and practices. Corporate and consumer customers expect organizations to maintain significant data security practices. Increasing enforcement actions and private lawsuits (including large class actions) have compelled companies to better vet their data collection and usage practices, engage experienced legal counsel and outside privacy vendors, and ensure their practices match their public-facing policies.
I&O Law has experience in data privacy law. Our Data Privacy Team regularly advises clients on developing industry-appropriate protocols, drafting privacy policies, and preparing for, and responding to data breaches. Our attorneys counsel businesses and individuals on information storage and rights of retrieval and deletion. We help these businesses ensure that their practices comply with the evolving privacy and data security requirements, including substantial new state requirements.
