Behind the Scenes

Privacy & Security - US & Abroad

Arent Fox is on the cutting edge of privacy laws and has experience assisting clients with all aspects of privacy and data security. For example, we routinely assist companies with the development of an internal security protocol that meets the requirements of the applicable state and federal laws. In this regard, our practice groups have helped companies comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy Rule, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLB), and the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), as well as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and related payment laws.

Our lawyers also routinely advise companies about online privacy, including providing advice on notification and consent, and when an opt-in is necessary, or merely suggested. In this capacity, we work with small and large businesses on their social media marketing to help them comply with all applicable rules, guidelines, and laws.

Finally, our team has notable experience with managing a reaction to a data breach, having been part of the response to one of the largest known data breach incidents. In this capacity, we assist with all aspects of the breach, including the consumer, regulator, and payment card industry notification procedures, and the compliance and protocol development after the incident.
