Conducting Privacy Compliance Due Diligence -- What Private Equity and VC Investors Need to Know
Sullivan & Worcester LLP presented a breakfast seminar and panel discussion, "Conducting Privacy Compliance Due Diligence — What Private Equity and VC Investors Need to Know," on Wednesday, April 27, 2011 in our New York office.
Companies that collect or use consumer data — particularly those operating in the online environment — often treat information about their users and customers as an essential form of currency. Regulations governing the collection, use, and protection of consumer data are being rapidly tightened by Congress, federal agencies, and state legislatures. And, even more stringent rules apply where financial, healthcare, employment, and children's information is involved.
Our partners provided, in an interactive discussion, an essential guide to assessing compliance with existing privacy rules, pending proposals, and questions you need to have answered. We considered real world problems and practical solutions.
