Crystal advises clients on privacy, data security, and other consumer protection matters, specifically focusing on issues involving children’s privacy, mobile apps, data breach notification, and other emerging technologies and counsels clients on conducting practices in compliance with the FTC Act, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, the GLB Safeguards Rule, Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA), and state privacy and information security laws.
