In today’s world, privacy and data security are top priorities. The U.S. does not have universal privacy laws to protect all aspects of personal information, which means that both federal and state statutes can apply. The legislation tends to govern what can be done with personal information and how it can be used by the collector. The FTC and State Attorneys General also work to define privacy laws and how they pertain to data collection and security. Manatt, Phelps and Phillips LLP is a top privacy and data security firm.
