When emergencies hit, Reed Smith’s clients routinely call upon the Firm’s Privacy, Security, and Management Group. We’ve dealt with everything from lost laptops to international hacking, database thefts by employees to pharmacy dumpster diving. On the litigation side, we have defended more than sixty (60) consumer class actions arising from privacy incidents, along with significant government relations and insurance recovery work. We are assisting a wide variety of clients with emerging challenges to what personal information they capture and utilize, both in connection with marketing as well as for day-to-day business operations.
There is no perfect privacy compliance program. However, in an article recently published by The Privacy & Data Security Law Journal, Paul Bond has presented a series of “Ten Data Security Questions Faced by Every Company.” A comprehensive approach to privacy compliance will address each of these questions, and reduce the incidence and likely severity of privacy events going forward.
If you have questions about this article, feel free to contact Paul directly, the Group’s head Mark Melodia, or the Reed Smith attorney with whom you regularly work.
