Privacy and Data Security Law

When it comes to data security, proactive planning is the best approach to minimize the risk of exposure, ensure compliance, and adopt procedures to follow in the event of data exposure.

Attorneys in the Shuttleworth & Ingersoll Privacy and Data Security practice area provide counsel to businesses and organizations concerning the ethical and legal obligations of protecting data, from ensuring compliance and implementing preventative measures, to planning for and implementing procedures for response and recovery in the aftermath of a security exposure or data breach.

Common concerns around privacy and data security to consider include:

  • Applicable laws affecting the collection and use of customer data
  • Limitations of sharing and transferring data
  • Obligations for remedy in the event of an exposure

Some of the most well-known privacy laws, regulations, and governing bodies that may affect your business include (this list is not exhaustive):

  • Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
  • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA)
  • General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
  • The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018
  • Children’s Online Privacy Protection Rule (“COPPA”)
  • Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA)

To implement the security plan for your business, the attorneys at Shuttleworth & Ingersoll work collaboratively with cybersecurity providers or an in-house team to ensure appropriate protective measures are in place.

Fallout after a data breach can have real consequences for an organization of any size, including punitive action in the form of fines and other measures from government protection agencies, to civil and class-action litigation. Shuttleworth & Ingersoll attorneys represent organizations that have experienced exposure as a result of a data breach in matters of litigation or representation in front of a government agency.
