Partner Stephen Hartzell was recently featured in a roundtable discussion hosted by Business North Carolina on Internet privacy and cybersecurity. The event was sponsored by Brooks Pierce. Hartzell spoke about how companies can better protect their data and how laws need to evolve to keep up with changing technology.
“Innovation outpaces the law. It’s complicated when new technology causes public concern, such as with camera-equipped drones. They are in the public consciousness, and we hear about creepy situations when they compromise privacy. Constituents share these concerns with elected officials, who respond with local- or state-level bills, sometimes without fully understanding the issue or current legal mechanisms that can deal with them,” Hartzell said.
