Data Privacy and Cybersecurity Law

Data Privacy Laws

Data is a business asset.

Treat it that way.

Beyond IT or Compliance

Data privacy and cybersecurity are no longer simply IT problems. Your business is a data breach target.

Today, how companies collect, store, use, or sell data is subject to a patchwork of Federal and state laws that you must consider in planning corporate strategy and seeking opportunity. 

Cybersecurity is an enterprise-wide risk that must be treated with the same vigilance as more traditional business risks.  In our digital world and with interconnected supply chains, an incident or data breach at one company may ripple across many, causing major damage along the way.  

Regardless of where your company is physically based, if you do business in another state or country, then your business must comply with the law there. 

That includes data privacy and security laws such as the California Consumer Privacy Act, or new laws in Nevada, and Maine.  Since 2018, twenty states have considered data privacy and security legislation to lower the chances of businesses as data breach targets.   

Understanding the legal implications that flow from data privacy and security issues is essential for business to thrive in today’s world. You need one of our Data Privacy Lawyers.
