As part of the California Attorney General’s ongoing effort to educate the business community regarding privacy issues, Jeffrey Rabkin, Special Assistant Attorney General for Law and Technology, briefed business professionals, privacy officers, in-house and outside counsel on May 13, 2014, in Alston & Bird’s Los Angeles Office.
Mr. Rabkin, who serves as Special Assistant Attorney General to California Attorney General Kamala D. Harris and is the Attorney General’s principal policy advisor on technology, discussed which privacy issues the California AG’s office will focus on in the near future, the office’s forthcoming report on best practices for privacy disclosures, the recent White House Report on Big Data, behavioral tracking, mobile apps, and data breach issues.
Although Mr. Rabkin’s discussion touched on numerous issues pertinent to the digital privacy world, Alston & Bird gleaned some “best practices” components of the discussion that could be useful to players in the digital ecosystem in the areas of Big Data, Privacy Policies, Data Breach, Mobile Apps, Medical Information and Enforcement.
