How do you set compliance priorities at a time of regulatory and legal uncertainty?  That’s the question facing communications and technology companies today.  Whether you are a telecommunications or VoIP provider, an Internet Service Provider, or an Internet of Things entrepreneur, 2017 is turning out to be a time of rapid regulatory change in the realm of privacy and data security.

In March, the FCC’s new Republican leadership stayed a portion of the agency’s new data security regulation that would have required “reasonable security measures” be taken to protect certain types of customer data.  Based on this news, it would be easy to get the impression that data security is no longer a regulatory priority.  Quite to the contrary, numerous other laws and regulatory agencies require your company to protect data and customer privacy.  And just around the corner, the E.U. is preparing to enforce the new General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), with significant penalties for non-compliance that are not to be ignored.

At The CommLaw Group, we’ve heard from numerous clients who have questions on how to proceed with new FCC privacy rules, with FTC privacy and data security requirements, and with regulatory challenges posed when providing services across borders, especially in both the U.S. and E.U.  We’ve also heard questions about CPNI rules – whether to still follow the rules or whether to abandon CPNI protection practices.  We’ll start with the basics in our webinar – what rules apply to your business – but then we’ll delve into the key issues you need to be thinking about regardless of any deregulatory agenda you hear about in the news.

We will provide your company with practical advice about what responsible privacy and data security looks like today, and suggest tools and resources your company can use now to comply with data security and privacy responsibilities.  Crucially, the webinar will emphasize the entire spectrum of laws and regulations out there, not just those slated to be rolled back at this time of promised deregulation.

Join Attorneys Linda McReynolds, Ronald Quirk, and Alexander Schneider from The CommLaw Group on April 6th, to learn more about all the applicable privacy and data security rules that apply to communications and Internet of Things businesses.  Our goal is to provide critical information you need to know when making key decisions on your privacy and data security practices.  We welcome your questions, which you can submit using the registration link.
