Levin Ginsburg is pleased to announce the addition of a new practice group: Privacy and Data Security. The group will be chaired by partner, Natalie A. Remien, who has recently been certified by The International Association of Privacy Professionals as a Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP). In addition to intellectual property, Ms. Remien’s practice now includes the ability to assist clients in reducing their legal exposure in the event of a data breach. Natalie is experienced in reviewing employee policies and handbooks to address privacy issues, and ensuring that clients have carefully drafted their terms of service and privacy policies on their websites in order to avoid FTC violations. The group also includes Kristen E. O’Neill. Kristen has considerable experience in preparing and reviewing employee policies and handbooks and assisting clients with minimizing their exposure to liability for privacy and data breaches.
Most businesses are affected by privacy laws and regulations and data security concerns and breaches. Uncovering the needs of a business, formulating sound policies and procedures, and having a system in place to address such issues before they arise is critical. To discuss these issues, please do not hesitate to contact Natalie A. Remien or Kristen E. O’Neill.
