The Data Strategy and Security team at Debevoise & Plimpton LLP has authored the Practising Law Institute’s 2023 edition of the Privacy Law Answer Book, a user-friendly guide to the laws and regulations that govern how companies collect, use, store and transfer the personal information of their consumers and employees. The book is styled as a Q&A so that practitioners can easily find answers to both common and uncommon questions.
The editors of the comprehensive book are Debevoise partners Avi Gesser, Erez Liebermann, and counsel Johanna N. Skrzypczyk and Kim T. Le, and are assisted by managing editor and Debevoise senior associate Michael R. Roberts. The book is the result of significant contributions from Debevoise partners, counsels, and associates, and is now available to legal and privacy practitioners.
The 2023 edition has been refreshed to include recent legislation in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Utah and Virginia, along with new enforcement actions and guidance from various regulators. It also includes several key updates related to international privacy laws and regulations. The book provides a detailed overview of the patchwork of federal, state and international laws and regulations that govern how private-sector entities handle consumers’ electronic data and personal information in commercial settings. Legal and privacy practitioners can use the book as a reference guide to keep pace with the latest developments in privacy and stay ahead of future data privacy challenges.
