Complimentary Webinar – Data Privacy and Regulation: Understanding Your Obligations and Exposures
On Tuesday, May 1, 2018, Airdo Werwas, LLC presented our Complimentary Webinar – Data Privacy and Regulation: Understanding Your Obligations and Exposures.
Collecting and storing data about employees, customers, donors, students, and patients is an integral part of every business’s operations. Maintaining that data safely and securely introduces risks and liabilities, particularly as the laws that govern personal information continue to change. Understanding both the data you possess, and your legal responsibility for handling that data, is essential to protecting your organization, your employees, and those you serve.
In this webinar, Mollie Werwas and Sean Hurley discussed the laws and regulations that govern data collection and security, and practical advice for safely managing that data, including:
- Identifying types of data that create legal exposure;
- Understanding the new GDPR (General Data Privacy Regulation) and how it will impact you;
- Recognizing your obligations under HIPAA, HIPAA HITECH, FERPA, and related state and federal laws and regulations;
- Protecting your organization in the event of a data breach.
