“Privacy Law has been a valuable resource for the privacy and legal teams at AOL. Charlene Brownlee manages to keep it ‘real' as she lays out both applicable law and strategies for compliance. [It] is often the first place I turn to quickly access the key privacy resources I need to address global privacy issues.” - Jules Polonetsky, Director and Co-chair of the Future of Privacy Forum
Privacy violations can occur at almost any level in an organization, with far-reaching consequences. Privacy Law thoroughly explains the legal obligations and potential liability of those who work with and share private information. It covers current law and emerging issues in depth, offering essential guidance on the privacy policies and practices organizations need to adopt to ensure compliance and the duty to notify employees and customers in the event of privacy breaches.
Beginning with the constitutional foundation of privacy rights, Privacy Law examines the impact of the laws, industry standards and consumer expectations regarding personal information and privacy in a variety of contexts, including: health care, financial institutions, the workplace, international business, e-commerce and corporate transactions.
Privacy officers, compliance officers, attorneys (both in private practice and in-house), record managers, IT staff, human resources and anyone else concerned with the steps that can and should be taken to protect privacy will find this book a constantly helpful resource.
