The U.S. Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization returned authority for regulating abortion to the states. This raises complex legal and ethical privacy and cybersecurity issues for employers.
Companies will have to contend with different and often conflicting regulations in each state where they operate. In some cases, state and federal rules may also conflict.
Join members of Goodwin’s Dobbs Task Force for an overview of privacy, cybersecurity and government enforcement issues that employers should be considering now, including:
- How Dobbs has expanded the types of data that employers will need to treat as sensitive
- Steps companies should consider to help ensure their products and services are optimized for privacy and cybersecurity in the wake of Dobbs
- Recommendations for updating privacy and cybersecurity practices, representations and disclosures, including in privacy policies, contractual agreements and other public statements
- How Dobbs has changed the enforcement landscape for companies that handle online consumer information
- Considerations for responding to government-issued subpoenas for companies that handle digital health and other information Dobbs has rendered sensitive
- How states are implementing data privacy safeguards in light of fears of aggressive enforcement
