Data Privacy: Technical Modesty in the Age of Oversharing (3/11/14)
1.0 hour CLE credit (includes 0.0 hour Enhanced Ethics)
In a post-Edward Snowden and post-Angela Merkel tapped cellphone world, our clients and customers are more aware of their private data than ever. Many are asking who can see the information they share with businesses–and those who aren’t asking, should be. Amy R. Worley, from McGuire Woods LLP’s Data Privacy and Security Team, examines three data privacy questions: 1) What is privacy? 2) What standards apply to the protection of private information? and 3) Why should my business care? Ms. Worley covers the two frameworks under which privacy is regulated. The United States and Japan use the horizontal model, which regulates privacy by industry. The EU, UK, and much of Asia use vertical regulation, and regulate privacy under a generally applicable data privacy law. She also covers the four most highly regulated areas for data privacy in the U.S.: healthcare, financial services, telecom, and education. Key laws applicable to each sector are discussed, including but not limited to, FACTA, the Disposal Rule, the Red Flags Rule, the GLBA, the Safe Harbor under GLBA, FERPA, Know your Customer, Dodd Frank, “Robo-calls”, and CPNI under the Telecom Act. Employment and privacy are also discussed. – DSB03112014DATA_
