Privacy & Data Security
Protecting personal data and information is one of the most important concerns a company or organization faces in today’s business world. Advances in technology, coupled with the vast storage capacity of digital media, heighten the importance of implementing comprehensive measures to protect against loss, criminal interception and misuse. It is also imperative that companies know what action is needed to comply with new – and much stricter – national and state regulations that define procedures, responsibilities and liability for personal information security and theft.
Chiesa Shahinian & Giantomasi’s Privacy & Data Security Group knows the risks our clients face in connection with financial, health and other personal information security issues. Because we are at the forefront of these sensitive matters, we proactively counsel clients to avoid serious financial risk and legal repercussions.
Our attorneys provide counsel regarding clients' obligations under the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act and the newest state laws, such as the New York State Information Security Breach and Notification Act and the New Jersey Identity Theft Prevention Act. We also advise clients in matters pertaining to evolving HIPAA regulations and consequences resulting from the theft or accidental release of personal health data.
