So much of our daily life is carried on through interactions in the online world, whether it be communicating with text, video, photos, and audio; carrying on our personal relationships online via social media and email; banking digitally; making purchases; or streaming and downloading entertaining. Intrusions into our lives, whether on purpose or by accident, are increasingly inevitable, and the opportunities for others to share and profit from our most private information is unprecedented and nearly limitless. AAJ’s Consumer Privacy/Data Breach Litigation Group and its membership works to address, tackle and remedy unlawful violations as well as to advise on policy solutions.
