An Introduction to Privacy Regulation, Litigation, and Enforcement

October 18, 2023, 12:30-1:30 p.m.

Privacy regulation in the United States, unlike the European Union, is a patchwork of state and federal law and regulatory agency interpretation. Often, regulatory oversight is based on business sectors, such as the health care and financial sectors, rather than an overarching approach to the protection of all personally identifiable information. In a number of instances, the laws and regulations overlap and are sometimes inconsistent. In this webinar, Bill Dillon, a shareholder in Gunster's Tallahassee office, and Lauren Scholz, FSU Law’s McConnaughhay and Rissman professor, will discuss the constitutional and regulatory framework in the United States as well as some of the enforcement mechanisms that are utilized when applicable laws and regulations are not followed.
