Over the past 50+ years, technology has revolutionized our world. It has generated amazing tools and resources, putting huge amounts of information at our fingertips, and created a new paradigm where every organization collects, stores, uses and discloses personal data. Technology has also led to regulatory gaps in many areas, and regulators today and around the world are rushing to keep pace with the unbridled advances of technology. Data privacy is but one area where stricter requirements for protecting personal data are expanding at an exponential rate around the world, as companies rely more heavily on data to provide, maintain and improve their services.

Having its roots in the heart of Silicon Valley since 1968, Hopkins & Carley understands the economic, market, cultural and regulatory climate in which companies operate. This blog is for those businesses striving to effectively comply with these evolving technology laws, regulations and standards worldwide.

With this blog, we hope to provide an interesting discourse regarding these important issues and to shine a spotlight on data privacy and security.
