Experts Discuss Threats, Anticipate Action
DATA PROTECTIONJanuary 24, 2013
A group of U.S. attorneys predict that U.S. regulators and states will enact privacy rules, despite failed attempts thus far to enact national privacy legislation. During a roundtable discussion on legal trends, Hunton & Williams’ Lisa Sotto, CIPP/US, Information Law Group’s David Navetta, CIPP/US, and Faruki Ireland & Cox’s Ronald Raether, CIPP/US, discussed today’s top privacy threats. Sotto said security vulnerabilities remain the biggest problem when it comes to protecting data. She not only mentioned perpetrators seeking to commit identity theft and account fraud but also the legitimate actors who may treat data in ways individuals find offensive. “We’re hearing a lot about online behavioral advertising or targeted marketing,” she said.
