    Product Description

    It has been eighteen years since California enacted the first anti-identity theft data breach law, and twelve years since Massachusetts enacted its own and promulgated information security regulations. Meanwhile, all the states have enacted at least data breach reporting laws. Although Congress has not acted to put in place security standards—much less privacy standards—for interstate commerce, each day we learn of a few of the countless “incidents” of common error data compromise along with “cyber-attacks” that demand bitcoin ransoms to resume personal, municipal, and infrastructure operation.

    Join us for a review of and update on the resources available to and the responsibilities of lawyers, compliance professionals, and their clients in the Massachusetts context that increasingly includes federal and international considerations. Learn about the new wave of “data protection” statutes that recognize data subject rights regarding personal information about them, however acquired—including aspects of privacy and security.
