Data Privacy Laws

Thomas Tyler Jr., CISA • Cyber Services Advisor – Traina & Associates, A CapinCrouse Company • Baton Rouge, LA

Data privacy incidents continue to make headlines. As a result, new data privacy laws have been enacted to ensure organizations are protecting the privacy of their constituents. But compliance won’t just help your organization avoid penalties — it will also help you avoid a data breach and respond quickly if one should occur. This session will help you understand Louisiana’s existing data breach notification law and prepare for the new laws of other states. Thomas Tyler will provide an overview of the laws and who they apply to, provide guidance for incident response and notification requirements, and explain best practices to protect your organization’s data.
