Tweaks and twists from government

It’s hard enough to know what the legal requirements are, but then they go and change them.  How do you adapt?  As hard as ediscovery is, data privacy is harder.  And data protection, harder still.

“EU Regulators Call for Changes to EU-U.S. Privacy Accord,” The Wall Street Journal, April 14, 2016 B3.  The proposed data transfer protocol that was designed to replace the Safe Harbor is challenged.

This is more troubling, and more immediate, than the proposal by two senators to require companies that sell products with encryption capability to provide the necessary assistance to the government to obtain the encrypted data.  “Senators Propose Encryption Rules,” The Wall Street Journal, April 14, 2016 B1.  Hopefully, this won’t get far, soon.
