  • Privacy is a fundamental right of individuals that is often compromised by government and businesses. Sometimes individuals and businesses voluntarily give up their privacy rights, without considering the consequences of doing so. Workplace privacy and information security is a fast growing area of the law that has important implications across industries.

    Counselor’s Corner Privacy and cybersecurity are two of the most dynamic areas of the law. As our society becomes more and more dependent on technology, and as the Internet of Things continues to expand, we are seeing privacy issues explode in personal and professional contexts.
