I hesitate to say "hot,"but here are two former Steel Hector lawyers, Lance Harke and Robert Vaughan, looking at an interesting legal issue from plaintiff and defense perspectives:
“This is an emerging area of the law, but this is not the first time the law has dealt with an emerging technology,” Harke said. Businesses “are the ones who invite you into their environment. I think you can reasonably expect that when you make a purchase that you not have four new credit cards issued in your name.”Good luck gentlemen.
Businesses, universities, hospitals and others safeguarding sensitive information find themselves under the gun by lawmakers to avoid breaches.
Under Florida law, a data breach can cost $1,000 a day for the first 30 days if it goes undisclosed, said Robert C. L. Vaughan of Squire Sanders & Dempsey in Miami. The fine can increase to $50,000 a month for the next six months and $500,000 a day after that.
“They are not only pretty serious about maintaining the integrity of the data but also disclosing the breach,” said Vaughan, a commercial litigator who has carved out a niche advising businesses about data protection and regulatory compliance.
Ok, if we're casting an ex-Steel Hector, WWE steel cage death match, who would you have in there? Joe Klock as a Vince McMahon-type is a no-brainer, I'd consider Lew Murphy as a Lou Albino manager-type, and Alvin? Hmm....
You guys have other suggestions?
