Do California Laws Protect Your Data?
While we’d all like to think that our personal information is safe under the law‚ in this day and age‚ the rapid advance of technology has left governments and regulatory bodies trying to catch up. If something happens and you find yourself irreparably harmed by an invasion of privacy‚ a data breach‚ identity theft‚ cyber stalking‚ or some other technology-related crime‚ it can be tough to find adequate redress through legal means.
That’s why you need an experienced California data lawyer on your side. You may have heard of recent instances where companies‚ or social networks such as Facebook‚ have been hacked or mishandled‚ and the private information of customers has been exposed or made public. California law stipulates that in such instances‚ the business or state agency must notify any California resident whose personal information is reasonably believed to have been accessed by an unauthorized person.
That means if a company has allowed your personal information to be stolen and fails to notify you in a timely fashion‚ you could have a case against them. Unfortunately‚ because dealing with large companies and social networks can be complicated‚ and law enforcement has been slow to learn and act on the latest laws‚ there is often a lack of enforcement‚ leaving victims vulnerable.
A proactive attorney can act quickly and aggressively to take action when you are harmed by the leaking of your private data. Companies that leverage our personal information for their own profit have a responsibility to protect their customers. Failure to do so is negligence.
Who Has Your Information?
Large corporations have entire departments dedicated to providing information security. Individuals and small businesses do not have the kind of resources to fight off professional hackers and online thieves. That’s why victims can often feel powerless at the very moment when they are most in need of help.
Many companies have been entrusted with your sensitive personal information‚ including:
- Financial institutions and banks
- Schools and universities
- Government agencies
- Healthcare companies
- Insurance companies
- Social networks
- Email providers
- Internet Service Providers
That’s not to mention your personal computers and mobile devices.
Because of the connectedness of our world‚ once private information is made public‚ it’s nearly impossible to make it private again. One mistake or criminal act can have a lifelong impact on your life. When data breaches or other cyber crimes occur‚ victims need to act quickly and consult with a San Diego mass tort attorney who understands the legal issues involved and can get results.
Jurewitz Law Group | Injury & Accident Lawyers will examine your situation‚ then devote the necessary resources to investigating your case and securing the compensation you deserve for any damage caused to you and your reputation.
