Litigation partner Jeannie Rhee was quoted in a July 24 Tech Wire Asia article discussing the increase in regulatory and legal actions against organizations as global data privacy and protection standards have changed.
“The scrutiny surrounding data and privacy will continue to intensify for the foreseeable future, and the consequences will become more significant,” Jeannie said. “Companies, directors, and officers must be aware of the increased scrutiny, and they should focus their efforts appropriately to manage the risk relating to data privacy obligations. Outside counsel can be of assistance in determining the need for and the scope of a data privacy inquiry; they may also review the possible reporting or disclosure obligations that may exist. Outside counsel also can provide insight on the range of practices across companies and industries facing similar cyber issues.”
