Privacy has become an overriding compliance concern for businesses, non-profits, and governments.  Our attorneys advise our clients on navigating the complex web of state, local, and international privacy law requirements.

Contemporary privacy law requires organizations that hold even their own employees’ personal information to take steps to protect it from exposure to cybercriminals and mistakes.  Should a loss of personal information occur, our attorneys can advise you on your organization’s data breach obligations and take steps to minimize your organization’s potential liability.

Many U.S. organizations that do business with the E.U. or multinationals have obligations under the E.U.’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), whether they know it or not.  We can provide customized advice on how to integrate compliance with GDPR into your organization’s processes, and identify where your organization needs to take action to meet GDPR’s requirements.

Similarly, our attorneys are taking the lead on addressing the challenges presented to businesses by the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018.

Likewise, maintaining HIPAA compliance and the exposure of patient data following a breach and are among the top challenges facing business entities and professionals in the healthcare space.    Our attorneys have considerable experience in assisting clients in avoiding the frequently disastrous pitfalls surrounding the management of patient data.

Whether your organization’s needs are as simple as a privacy policy for your website, or as complicated as putting in place GDPR compliant processes or HIPAA protocols, McCormick Barstow can assist you in appropriately protecting the personal information held by your organization
