CFAA, CAN-SPAM, HIPPA, and CADRA are just a few of the many alphabet-soup acronyms that make up the legal rubric in the United States that govern information security, privacy, and technological issues- information security professionals need to understand the patchwork of laws in the United States (and Florida in particular) to be truly effective in their endeavors. New state laws appear every day with different standards for what data is considered sensitive and how an organization is dealt with if they disclose protected information. What laws should you be aware of when engaging your organization about risk and data disclosure? This talk will focus on the CFAA, the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, as well as CADRA, Florida’s Computer Abuse and Data Recovery Act.

The talk will include 20-30 minutes of round table style discussion allowing the audience to ask questions regarding matters of law and data privacy.
