Practically any business operating today has certain rights, responsibilities, and obligations related to privacy and cybersecurity.
We live in a technologically-driven world that’s more connected than ever. Our personal and professional lives seemingly revolve around the collection of personal data, its dissemination, and manipulation.
Privacy and cybersecurity issues abound on a global scale, from the aggregation of data in database or retrieval systems for banking, entertainment, healthcare, employment, and other uses, to cameras surveilling our day-to-day movements, to web browsers tracking what we read, what we buy, and where we’ve been. Companies that use software, systems, and processes to collect, store, and transform personal data have certain rights, responsibilities, and obligations to manage, protect, distribute, and even erase that data.
It’s a complex and growing regulatory landscape that involves federal, state, and international laws, rules, and requirements. Suffering a data breach or data loss, or failing to comply with various regulations, whether you’re aware of them or not, can be disastrous for a business.
