Data Privacy Week is here and we want to help you protect the privacy of your data when you are at home, work, or within your community. We know it is imperative to safeguard data to foster trust and respect the privacy of each person.
Is Your Data Private Property?
Similar to other properties, personal data ownership is able to be transferred. There are laws to protect a lot of data-patents, trade secrets, and copyrights. Milwaukee business attorneys want to ensure your personal and business data is protected.
How to Own Your Privacy
There is a way to own your personal data, and the “Own Your Own Data Act” wants to ensure this happens. This act is explicit about a user owning their own data. Yet, it also includes the right to also delete that same data. This Act challenges organizations to form an agreement permitting individuals to withdraw the license by a click of the mouse.
