    • Mapping Requirements to Firm Practices
    • The Role of Technology and Ethical Screening / Information Barrier Software

  • Data Privacy: Hunton & Williams notes that Mississippi just joined 45 other states by putting place a data security / breach notification law that will take effect mid-2011.
