Data Privacy

Privacy and data security laws have exploded in the last decade, as the cloud-computing revolution moved sensitive data into the hands of remote service providers.  We have adapted our firm’s practice to keep pace.   

We advise our clients on compliance with the developing body of privacy and data protection laws, including the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), similar data protection laws in other foreign jurisdictions like Switzerland and Japan, the Massachusetts Data Security Regulation, the Gramm-Leach Bliley Act, and other laws and regulations.  A large portion of our clients are US-based SaaS providers, which often must agree to strict data protection agreements with their corporate customers, even if they do not yet have a presence in Europe or California.  We regularly draft and negotiate data protection agreements (DPAs ) and amendments for our clients.  We formulate data security and privacy policies and procedures, and we update our clients’ online privacy policies and terms of service to reflect the requirements of the CCPA and the GDPR. 

While data security and privacy are relatively new concerns to American businesses, Bob was studying and
writing about the topic nearly thirty years ago.
