Abortion Ruling Raises Privacy and Security Questions

Indianapolis Business Journal

Government and regulatory partner Doriann Cain authored an article for Indianapolis Business Journal (IBJ) that discusses the impact of the United States Supreme Court’s recent decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization and how the ruling raises privacy and security questions related to women seeking health care services.

Cain outlines guidance from the Federal Trade Commission, noting that the agency will aggressively wield enforcement authority as it relates to deceptive statements about sensitive data, and provides an example from a case in Idaho.

The author also lists steps tech companies can take to better protect their businesses, including 1) review and amend privacy notices, 2) minimize data collection, 3) develop a subpoena-response plan and 4) review cybersecurity safeguards.

The full article is available to IBJ subscribers.
