We are involved with data privacy and security-focused organizations including the International Association of Privacy Professionals, as well as state and national health care associations.
If your business has interests in foreign countries, it is important to watch international data protection and privacy regulations. Our International Data Protection Regulations group will help you stay ahead of the curve and prepare for new rules that affect your company.
