Gordon & Rees has launched Privacy Teaches and Breaches, a blog that covers the privacy and data security landscape by providing invaluable information regarding rules, regulations, challenges and risk assessment companies face in today's high-tech world.
Edited by partner Andrew D. Castricone, the blog offers perspectives on timely legal issues involving cyber attacks, data breaches, and the challenges businesses face in maintaining and protecting customer, employee, and confidential information.
With contributions from members of Gordon & Rees’s Privacy & Data Security Practice Group, the blog discusses best practices for compliance with evolving state, federal, and international laws and regulations; creation, implementation, and maintenance of sound data security practices and procedures; and risk assessment, management, responses and notification requirements related to data breaches. The blog also addresses risk management to avoid litigation, including class actions, and to limit and mitigate potential liabilities from unauthorized use and disclosure.
