Wilson Discusses the Changing Privacy Landscape

Privacy Matters
– SC Magazine

SC Magazine interviewed Manatt's Donna Wilson, co-chair of the firm's Privacy and Data Security for an article on how privacy has become difficult to define and to protect. Current guidelines for privacy are mostly drawn from the Electronic Communications Protection Act of 1986 (ECPA), a forward-thinking law for its time but now outdated enough to be considered if not irrelevant, then an obstacle.

"Privacy statutes are stale," said Wilson. "The ECPA is being used in ways no one would have imagined."
