1) Does your business have internal and external privacy notices/policies based on templates you created rather than “borrowed”?
2) Does your business have data processing agreements with all service providers who process personal information on your behalf and for whom you process personal information?
3) Does your business have a written information security program in place?
4) Has your business reviewed its privacy practices in light of new laws within the past two years?
If you answered no to any of these questions, this webinar is for you. We’ll walk you through the Big 3: Privacy Notices/Policies, Data Processing Agreements/Addenda, and Witten Information Security Programs (WISPs).
There are three trends emerging in privacy law: (1) more and more countries and states are enacting privacy laws, (2) more and more fines are being assessed for noncompliance with the laws, and (3) more and more lawsuits are being filed for noncompliance. And it’s not just big businesses who are at risk – in the European Union and the UK, for example, many fines have been assessed against small businesses. While some businesses will not meet the thresholds under certain state laws for the particular law to apply, others (e.g., the European Union, the UK) typically do not have any thresholds. And even if you think a foreign law would not apply to you because you don’t do business there, it might if you capture analytics information such as IP addresses of individuals located in those places.
