Information Technology and Data Privacy Law

Almost every business process is dependent on Information Technology. We accumulate enormous amounts of information in databases that are vulnerable to unauthorized access from within and outside of the business entity. Privacy regulations and supply chain agreements require IT Security measures, off-site storage and contingency plans for data recovery in the event of a business interruption or technology failure. The complexity of information networks is increasing. Acquiring new business software applications now requires the assistance of professional systems integrators and consultants to work with the in-house IT staff in an explicit implementation process.
