Navigate the tricky legal maze and ensure you meet privacy obligations for your customers, employees, and the general public.

The last few decades have seen an exponential increase in the amount of personal information of the average American that is collected, stored, transmitted, and used by businesses, government agencies, hospitals, educational and financial institutions, social media organizations, advertisers and others. The need to balance an organization’s or business’s right to use the data against the individual’s right to privacy has resulted in a variety of laws and regulations.

This topic will outline the rules related to privacy that Texas businesses must comply with, specifically including federal statutes such as HIPAA, FERPA and GLB, as well as Texas state laws such as the Medical Record Privacy Act, the Identity Theft Enforcement and Protection Act, and the provisions of the 2011 Texas Legislature’s House Bill 300. It will also highlight laws of other jurisdictions that might be applicable to Texas business, such as the CCPA and GDPR, due to having employees or customers who are residents of other states or countries.
