Reading about the law and information technology these days, you come across a remarkable number of stories describing and discussing IT and privacy. What is fascinating about many of the articles is what information or actions are considered to be “private.” Many judicial opinions, for example, concern law enforcement obtaining cell site location information (CSLI) from cell providers and other sources in order to track the movements of a subject of investigation (CSLI is discussed in greater detail and these opinions infra) and the privacy interests that prevent law enforcement from simply getting the data from providers or creating the data through its own tracking or interception of cell tower information. Other opinions and legal discussions concern what privacy interest a creator or recipient of a digital file (e.g., an email, a Word document) has in that file if it is stored by a third party, as is increasingly the case with cloud storage, particularly as it has come to be relied upon in the age of the pandemic. Still other legal discussions concern the privacy rights of persons whose movements (not spoken words) are captured by surveillance cameras: the single camera outside a building and controlled by the building’s resident or director; cameras in many, or every, room in the building; cameras installed and controlled by law enforcement that survey public streets and other public areas. There are many other contexts in which privacy interests in information accessed by, transmitted by or stored in IT are discussed.

The intensity of information security briefings often leads to organizations tucking the CISO under the CIO instead. After all, all technology is related, right? This is a huge mistake, and it is wreaking havoc on American data security.

It’s not a matter of whether you have an interest in crypto, think it’s all a bizarre techno-bubble, the eventual replacement for fiat currency, or somewhere in between. The fact of the matter is your clients, and future clients, are more likely than ever to have a connection to this market, and a brief review of the headlines can make this prospect seem terrifying.
