The frictionless flow of information is a defining feature of today’s information economy. Your organization’s ability to transfer customer data, employee files, financial records, and other information around the country or the globe quickly and cheaply has opened a world of new opportunities. Privacy laws vary by jurisdiction and are interpreted unpredictably, and even if your business is extremely conscientious, it can make a false step as it captures, uses, transfers, and discloses personal information. The consequences can be serious and even devastating — heavy fines, injunctions, government audits, even criminal liability and damaging media attention.
