Addressing Complex Privacy and Data Security Challenges

Compliance with privacy and data security obligations presents a daunting challenge for businesses today. A rapidly changing legal landscape, combined with new technologies capable of collecting huge stores of personal information in unprecedented ways, requires legal counsel who are as technologically savvy as they are legally astute.

VLP’s Privacy & Data Security Practice Group is dedicated to helping clients navigate a constantly shifting landscape of privacy and data security laws both in the United States and abroad. Our services in this area include:

  • Conducting privacy audits and assessments.
  • Drafting privacy policies and data transfer agreements.
  • Advising on the privacy implications of mobile devices and cross-device tracking.
  • Assisting clients to comply with the CCPA and other state privacy laws, federal privacy requirements (including COPPA, HIPAA, FERPA and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act), and also European Union (GDPR), Canada (PIPEDA) and other foreign data protection laws.
  • Drafting corporate policies that address social media use, “bring your own device” and other privacy-related issues.
