Data Privacy & Data Breach
Although there are steps you can take to protect your data – such
as choosing strong passwords and doing business with reputable
vendors – there’s nothing you can do to prevent it from being
stolen from a company with negligent cybersecurity practices.
What Laws Are Companies Bound By?
Businesses must implement privacy policies to keep their clients’ information safe and may be held responsible for damages in the event of a breach. The federal laws that help protect your data include:
The Gramm-Leach Bliley ACt
The USA Patriot Act
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act
The Federal Trade Commission's Identity Theft Red Flag Rules
Not all companies do their part to keep your data safe. However, our data privacy lawyers have experience in all areas of compliance and information theft, including international policies for online enterprises that do business in the United States and overseas. You may be able to recover your losses with our help.
