Civil Actions Under The Stored Communications Act: What Works, What Doesn't, And What To Look Out For [Also available as Webinar]

The Stored Communications Act (SCA) is often criticized as an antiquated law that's out of date for today's cloud computing world -- and it is. But even if the law is outmoded, we’re still bound to comply. The SCA provides privacy protection for many types of electronic communications, and it reaches well beyond headline-grabbing disputes over when law enforcement can access information stored in the cloud. The SCA also includes a civil cause of action that poses litigation risks and compliance challenges for businesses large and small.


This presentation will address a range of privacy pitfalls under the SCA that companies may encounter when they maintain user data. It will also address frequently overlooked claims that may be brought in commercial or employment disputes where there's been unlawful access to electronic records (such as shared drives, cloud storage and email.) We will discuss emerging questions about the scope of these civil claims and share best practices for how to respond to subpoenas and other requests for information. Stay ahead of the curve in this complicated and confusing area of the law.
