The proliferation of data privacy and security laws across the United States continues to accelerate in step with the increasing volume and mobility of corporate data and threats of data breaches. Companies and their compliance practices are increasingly scrutinized by regulators and other watchdog groups. This can quickly spiral into costly and reputation-damaging government enforcement actions and litigation exposure.
