Welcome to the Proskauer Privacy Law Blog. Proskauer’s Privacy and Data Security Practice Group is tremendously pleased to bring you what we hope will become a trusted source for summary and analysis of breaking legal developments in the evolving field of privacy and data security law. This blog is designed in part to complement our recent privacy treatise published by PLI entitled Proskauer on Privacy: A Guide to Privacy and Data Security Law in the Information Age.

Today we bring you posts regarding (1) the introduction of federal legislation that would give the Attorney General very broad authority to enact rules requiring Internet Service Providers to retain records so law enforcement can access customers’ online activities; (2) adoption by the EU Data Protection Working Party of a new model application form for Binding Corporate Rules; and (3) some of the many new proposed bills in the 110th Congress regarding data security breach notification that would preempt the more than 35 currently existing state laws.

In addition, you can find posts that I previously contributed to the California Privacy Law blog hosted by the Los Angeles County Bar Association.

Of course, we are interested in your feedback, and welcome your suggestions and comments. We look forward to hearing from you.
