With data and privacy regulations such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, GDPR, and CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act) evolving, law firms are busily helping their clients to achieve privacy compliance. As many legal professionals are learning, most clients do not have current data inventory of their sensitive information that needs regulating. Firms must contend in developing generic policies that their clients cannot effectively implement or enforce.
