Data Privacy: How Proactive Are You?

Saturday, 08 November 2014 20:16

By Arthur Freyre, Esq.

The Florida Information Protection Act (FIPA) became law this past summer. FIPA requires that all entities need to take reasonable measures to protect personal information. For more information regarding FIPA, please my prior FIPA post. It will give you general overview of the law.

When defining reasonable measure, FIPA did not give a definition. This is such a new area of the law and, as such, it is to be expected; however, there is guidance available from various sources. For example, the International Association of Privacy Professional released a study of Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) enforcement actions regarding data privacy.

"It reflects, he says, “taking a step back in terms of the maturity that the Cuban-American community has shown in terms of politics. Every once in a while we fall back into the politics of passion, and this is what we were seeing between Curbelo and Garcia” Congressional campaign.
