Cybersecurity and Privacy Compliance, and Data Management

Our team has substantial experience developing and counseling clients on novel and complex privacy compliance matters across a range of industries and jurisdictions. We help clients navigate an ever-changing, and at times conflicting, privacy regulatory landscape with business-focused and pragmatic strategies designed to minimize risk and potential liability. We have extensive experience counseling clients on state, federal and international privacy regulatory regimes, including the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and its successor the Consumer Privacy Rights Act (CPRA), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA), the Stored Communications Act (SCA), federal and state wiretap laws, the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA), state data protection laws (e.g., New York’s Stop Hacks and Improve Electronic Data Security (SHIELD) Act and its Department of Financial Services cyber rule), data breach notification laws and obligations, and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).
