Announcing the Privacy Portal Blog

Press Release
August 3, 2020
Miami, FL – Bilzin Sumberg is pleased to announce the launch of its Privacy Portal Blog, a gateway into insights about data privacy and data protection. 

Even before the COVID-19 global pandemic, businesses across the world have been "going global" using available technology and Cloud-based data storage and file sharing. With this heightened dependence on off-site connectivity, the potential risks and vulnerabilities of shared data have also become a growing concern for companies and individuals seeking to protect it. 

Authored by Bilzin Sumberg's Data Security & Privacy Team, the Privacy Portal Blog provides a look into this ever-changing field of law and offers insights into all things related to data privacy and cybersecurity. 

Privacy Portal Blog editors, Litigation Practice Group Leader, Philip R. Stein; Construction Law Group Partner, Kelly Ruane Melchiondo; and Business Finance & Restructuring Partner, Jeffrey I. Snyder, agree that a critical factor in data protection is a company's ability to be proactive. 

"Cybercriminals are aware of the massive shift to remote working and are going to great lengths to exploit vulnerabilities of these systems," said Stein. "At the same time, states and various national and international regulatory authorities are expecting more from companies with respect to safeguarding individuals' private, personal information.  Through the Privacy Portal Blog, we will share our knowledge of this highly specialized area of law to keep general counsel, IT professionals, and related business leaders abreast of what needs to be done to safeguard information and reduce their exposure."

The Data Security & Privacy Team is a multidisciplinary group of attorneys with experience in various industries including, financial services, construction, business finance and restructuring, and joint ventures and strategic alliances. The team has market-leading knowledge in data privacy and data protection law, and is able to advise on past precedent while having the foresight to anticipate future trends that could affect their clients. 

New content for the blog will be featured monthly with topics including information technology and data security legal developments, relevant legislation or regulations in multiple jurisdictions, cybersecurity insurance, the use of biometric data, GPS and tracking software, safeguarding of trade secrets, use of social media, license agreements, privacy policies, and terms of use/service in various industries.  To learn more about all things data privacy and protection and their effects on you and your business, visit
