Privacy expert witnesses can provide expert opinion on privacy protection and security issues for both consumers and employees. Privacy consulting may be required to determine the source of a privacy violation, whether it concerns consumer protection, business practices, or governmental policies. Various industries require privacy policies to be put in place due to the nature of each particular field, including retail pharmacy, the financial sector, computer science, consumer research, economic laws, human resources, tax laws, healthcare, labor and employment law, information management, security, insurance, and other fields working with the private information of one or more individuals.
Privacy expert witnesses are usually IT professionals and they have knowledge how to implement security measures as a means of ensuring one’s privacy. A failure to follow IT security compliance may result in leaked or stolen information, which would be grounds for possible lawsuits. Identity theft is a particularly problematic example of privacy violations, since it consists of another individual using one’s private data to assume his or her identity. Identity theft and other forms of privacy violations may be committed via the use of fraudulent documents, whether they involve credit information or other sensitive forms of data.
Privacy expert witnesses are often called upon to provide an expert opinion regarding whether the proper security measures were in place during the incident in question. If a company failed to enforce the proper consumer protection policies, for instance, an invasion of privacy would be on the fault of that particular business.
