Privacy & Data Security
Rapid advances in technology, coupled with countless state and federal laws, force companies large and small to put privacy at the forefront of their daily operations. Complying with continually changing regulations is one of the biggest challenges businesses face today.
At Reger Rizzo & Darnall, our Privacy & Data Security Group possesses a keen understanding of these regulations and a breadth of experience. Our attorneys put their decades of experience in the privacy and data security fields to work for our clients. We assist businesses with a wide range of needs, such as developing and implementing corporate policies and procedures, representing clients in transactional matters, public policy and legislative issues, and when needed, representing clients in privacy and data security litigation matters.
A company’s proprietary information is often times its most important asset. That is why it is essential for business owners to create and implement a data protection strategy to safeguard their most valued asset, and ensure the continued success of their business.
At Reger Rizzo & Darnall, we provide clients with strategic guidance so they can identify and prioritize their objectives related to collecting, storing and protecting sensitive customer and company information. We work hand-in-hand with business owners and managers in order to develop customer and employee privacy policies, as well as data management policies, that meet legal compliance requirements and fit within the company’s previously established business model. We also work with clients to create the necessary systems, policies and procedures and implement those changes seamlessly into their already successful business practices.
Privacy & Data Security Litigation
Privacy and data security litigation, specifically related to data breaches, is a rapidly growing concern for business owners. Reger Rizzo & Darnall’s group of experienced litigators have defended clients in privacy investigations brought by federal and state regulatory agencies, as well as multiple class actions asserting deceptive trade practice claims based on privacy practices.
We have litigated and advised clients in a wide range of cases involving forged emails, denial of service attacks, hackers and unauthorized access and counterfeit websites. Additionally, our attorneys are well versed in the myriad of rules and regulations governing privacy litigation, including the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, the Theft of Trade Secrets Act and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
