Privacy law alerts

It's a luxury to afford teams of attorneys monitoring the relevant legislation. Or, it was. As part of Osano's platform, a dedicated team of attornies are at the ready to help you stay on top of legislative developments.

Which Laws

With nearly constant introductions and passage of privacy laws, it's untenable for a business to stay on top of which laws are coming, which they need to follow, and whether it applies to their particular business. Osano alerts you when new privacy laws are introduced or passed, putting you in the know and ahead of the competition.

What It Means

The GDPR is 261 pages long,  not unusual for a privacy law. Distilling the real world impact of laws into non-legal speak is important if you plan to make business decisions around those laws. Osano summarizes changes in plain language so you don't need to hire an attorney to study every privacy bill that is introduced.

Take Action

Nine states have updated their breach notification requirements for 2019 and 2020. California's CCPA law has specific requirements around disclosure and consent. Understanding exactly what it means for you and what action you need to take is critical. Osano provides you with clear, actionable advice that you can depend on.

Your competition is already watching for new laws.

There is no category of legislation that has more attention right now than data privacy. Ensuring fair play and creating regulations for data collection and transfers is top of mind for many lawmakers.

If your competition is watching the laws and already preparing to comply with upcoming laws, then you are behind schedule.

Don't take a chance of being uninformed. The legal principle of "ignorantia juris non excusat" which means "Ignorance is not an excuse" is held up daily by courts.

Being unaware of new laws does not serve as an excuse for avoiding them. Take ownership of monitoring new laws and avoid being caught by surprise with Osano.
