Holland & Knight Webinar
CLE Available, Webinar
June 3, 2015
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM ET

Today's marketplace is a hotbed for technological innovation and business-minded entrepreneurs to launch a startup company. Often, the focus on driving rapid growth as well as budget constraints results in privacy concerns being put on the backburner.

However, consumers and regulators have little sympathy for failed security practices or privacy violations for companies that do not take these issues seriously. As a result, major incidents often result in damage to one's brand or reputation, which could be the "iceberg" that sinks a startup organization.

Join us to learn about the privacy pitfalls and recommended best practices for startups to avoid being the "Titanic of the Digital Era."

During this webinar, you will learn basic privacy and e-commerce guidance for startup companies, including:

  • privacy basics: a high-level overview of the Fair Information Practices Principles
  • how personal information is defined and regulated across jurisdictions
  • the importance of having a privacy policy and terms of use (applicable to both websites and mobile apps)
  • guidelines for developing a privacy policy and terms of use
  • the value of data and associated risks
  • information security missteps and best practices
