On December 10, 2013, the Privacy Enforcement and Protection Unit of the California Office of the Attorney General (CA AG) held a meeting in San Francisco for interested stakeholders to discuss best practices in light of the Assembly’s enactment of A.B. 370, California’s new do-not-track disclosure law that goes into effect on January 1, 2014. As discussed in the previous Alston & Bird Client Advisory on A.B. 370, the new law provides that operators of websites, online services and mobile applications must amend their privacy policies as of the new year to either (1) disclose how they respond to do-not-track signals from Internet browsers or other consumer choice mechanisms regarding the collection of behavioral tracking data; or (2) link to an online location containing a description of a consumer choice program the operator follows and explain the effects of that program. The new law also requires these operators to disclose the type and nature of any third-party tracking occurring on their sites, services or apps. The CA AG staff focused the discussion with stakeholders on what should constitute “best practices” regarding do-not-track disclosures, rather than on what would be required for businesses to simply comply with the new disclosure requirements created by passage of A.B. 370.

In the age of targeted intrusions, sophisticated criminal and nation-state actors are often compromising hundreds of systems within a single company’s environment. However, companies are often only seeing a small portion of the entire incident, as their response to such invasions can be, and often is, too narrowly shaped by state security breach notification requirements, industry rules governing payment card breaches and the absence of a direct legal obligation requiring a more comprehensive review. If a company has a less-than-complete understanding of the nature and scope of the intrusion, it could be exposed when the criminals revisit the enterprise for further exploitation or when regulators and class-action plaintiffs begin probing into details of the company’s response.

With the victory of President Obama, Americans decided that, with major economic indicators trending positive, it would be best to stay the course with the incumbent.  Obama’s first term in office saw a revitalization of the U.S. auto industry, a sharp rebound in the stock market, positive growth in the economy and a steady, albeit slow and by no means sufficient, increase in job growth. Ultimately, these positive economic indicators were enough to sway an electorate that continues to place more blame for the currently weak economy on former President George W. Bush.
