Welcome to the inaugural issue of Eye on Privacy.

Privacy and data security may very well be among the most pressing issues facing companies today, especially given the dynamic regulatory landscape. In just the past few months, the White House and the Federal Trade Commission each released a report outlining a new framework to govern privacy and data security in the United States; the FTC and state attorneys general continued their steady drumbeat of law enforcement; a national cybersecurity bill was introduced in Congress; and the European Union proposed a new data-security regulation that would impose substantial fines on companies that experience data intrusions. And, of course, private class action litigation continues.

Staying current on these crucial issues can be daunting, whether you work on them every day or only on occasion. By launching this newsletter, we hope to help you understand and navigate the privacy landscape.

Please let us know how we’re doing by contacting us at PrivacyAlerts@wsgr.com. We welcome your feedback and questions, and your thoughts on any topic that you’d like us to address.
