Data Privacy

New regulations and COVID-19 related privacy needs are impacting companies across jurisdictional borders and putting tremendous pressure on resource-constrained legal teams.

Data privacy regulations continue to proliferate around the globe while COVID-19 restrictions are creating new challenges.

Building a defensible data privacy framework requires a thoughtful, agile approach that will enable businesses to adapt quickly, and to stay in compliance with each new regulatory requirement.

The COVID-19 privacy challenges that have emerged, such as remote work, employee health monitoring, and data sharing, require careful consideration and expertise to manage correctly.
