This book takes complex privacy laws relevant to the financial services industry and makes them understandable - without losing the nuance critical to effective execution. The text explains the linkage with other laws and provides direction on the best options to execute these laws. Most defects, gaps, enforcement actions, or fines come from two areas: 1) not understanding the law and 2) not executing completely. This book addresses those issues head on.
For the attorney, providing an explanation for the applicable law is just a part of the answer. Even when not specifically asked by the client, providing guidance on operational considerations exceeds client expectations and distinguishes you as a trusted legal advisor.
For the auditor, regulator, researcher or other third party, this text provides a benchmark against how others operationalize privacy. Operational considerations section of the text provides the platform to assess your clients - and provides comparisons and guidance around what is being done.
Understanding the nuances of the law allows focus where they need counsel, channel issues/concerns and be efficient with time and budget. Engaging counsel too early – either to ask basic questions, assess regulations not applicable, or have questions too broad to be meaningless – impacts your credibility with this audience and your organization.
