Technology Blog

From token generation events and drone regulation to the latest developments in privacy and data security compliance, our Technology Industry Blog focuses on the still-evolving regulatory landscape for companies developing new products and services, as well as those for whom technology figures prominently into their day-to-day operations.

Many of our contributors are IAAP-certified privacy professionals or hold advanced STEM degrees, with prior experience working as systems engineers and software developers. As a result, our blog offers that rare coupling of legal insight and technical sophistication, making it a true resource for businesses operating at the bleeding edge, where reliable legal intel can prevent project delays as well as civil and criminal exposure.
