Information Privacy and Security

McLane Middleton's Information Privacy and Security Group can help your business manage and address the risks inherent in our digital world.

Information Security – A Compliance and Litigation Minefield

Businesses must take adequate precautions to protect the personal and health information of their customers and employees and the public at large. While companies involved in health care, banking, financial services, education, and credit services have been subject to rigorous compliance standards for some time, every business is now facing the need to comply with the multiplicity of laws and regulations enacted by the various states, including nationwide application of Massachusetts, Texas and California law.

McLane Middleton’s Privacy and Information Security Group has the depth of subject matter knowledge and breadth of industry experience necessary to help your business become and stay data security compliant. Even careful companies, however, can experience a data security incident or breach. Our prompt, level-headed and meticulous responses to such breaches have helped many clients control and avoid litigation and the other potentially disastrous consequences of a breach.

 

Privacy – A Brave New Digital World

McLane Middleton’s Privacy and Information Security Group also guides clients through the complex legal and business issues inherent in data privacy. We approach these issues proactively, starting with comprehensive information use policies and procedures tailored to each particular business and designed to avoid internal problems and costly litigation. We also train business executives, leaders, managers and employees about appropriate data use and privacy.

Our legal professionals fuse legal and technical knowledge to help clients address the myriad of data privacy issues that arise on a daily basis, particularly with respect to social media, email, webmail, mobile devices, surveillance, background checks, laptops, personal computers, servers, databases, and the many other technologies used by companies and individuals today.
