Data Privacy + Cybersecurity

Our Data Privacy + Cybersecurity Practice

Data privacy and cybersecurity affects all businesses and industries. To handle this complex area, Robinson+Cole's Data Privacy + Cybersecurity Team brings together lawyers from the firm's various practices. This approach allows us to match just the right resources to our clients' specific needs.

Our team regularly works with federal and state data privacy and security rules and regulations, including the following:

  • California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA) and Do-Not-Track laws
  • CANSPAM
  • Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)
  • Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA)
  • Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
  • Gramm – Leach – Bliley Act (GLBA)
  • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act ( HIPAA)
  • Federal Trade Commission Act (FTC Act)
  • FTC's Telemarketing Sales Rule (TSR)
  • FTC's Fair Information Practice Principles (FIPPs)
  • Massachusetts Written Information Security Plan (WISP) requirements
  • State law, including workplace privacy statutes, antispam statutes, AG enforcement actions, and other privacy protection statutes and trends
  • European Union (EU) Data Protection Directive
  • EU Safe Harbor Attestations
  • Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA)
  • Video Privacy Protection Act

Our lawyers are knowledgeable about data collection technology, including the use of cookies. We also understand the value of collecting and using data for marketing and other strategic purposes.

We are well versed in data breach response, remediation, coordination, and litigation, including investigations by the U.S. Office of Civil Rights and state AGs.

We actively attend and speak at FTC, state AG, and industry-sponsored workshops and programs on data privacy and security developments, cases, trends, and agendas. We track federal and state privacy laws and proposals to keep our team apprised on this rapidly evolving area.

We advise clients in data mapping and development of enterprise-wide privacy and security plans, and compliance with various privacy requirements as well as industry-specific regulations. We are experienced in advising clients on the sharing and transfer of collected data, whether a license arrangement, a sale, or in the bankruptcy context. We regularly structure arrangements with promoters, marketers, website exchanges, health information exchanges, and other third parties for the sharing and care of our clients' customer data.

We advise clients on practices and policies to safeguard data against accidental or deliberate disclosure, including security programs, policies, education, and implementation of administrative, technical, and physical safeguards.

We also work with clients to develop website and mobile app privacy policies and terms and conditions of use, and social media policies, practices and procedures.

Our clients include companies in all industries, including: tax-exempt organizations with significant fundraising activities, general audience websites and mobile apps, catalogue and direct marketing companies, companies with a significant offline database of customer information, computer software companies, start-up companies, companies providing remote monitoring of equipment, health care providers, hospitals and patient portal vendors, health information exchanges, utilities, manufacturing, energy, and wireless telecommunications service providers.
