As you grapple with difficult privacy and data protection issues, you won't want to be without Bender on Privacy and Data Protection. This timely resource provides a framework to help you make sense of important questions in this rapidly-evolving area of law.

Designed for the busy practitioner, the book is divided into four parts: (1) federal law, (2) state law, (3) international law, and (4) issues that warrant a special focus, such as privacy policies, behavioral advertising, search engines, cloud computing, the cost of privacy measures, and RFID (radio frequency identification).

Practice Insights sections set out important take-aways and practical implications. For further convenience, expert legal analysis is broken into subsections with lists and bullet points to help you find just the right information quickly and easily. In addition, many chapters have one or more Appendices that set out important supplementary materials, including text and analysis of relevant U.S. and international privacy and data protection law.

"David Bender's new book -- Bender on Privacy and Data Protection is a well–;organized and detailed treatise spanning the world of privacy and data protection. Starting with a discussion of the key U.S. federal and state privacy laws, the book turns its attention to the EU and APEC, and then closes with several chapters on particular topics such as cloud computing and behavioral advertising. Clearly the book cannot cover every possible law or aspect of the data protection universe but I found it particularly compelling in its chapters that apply the privacy laws to particular contexts. For example, the chapter on Cross–;Border Transfer of Personal Data goes into great details on the complexities of transferring personal data from the EU. The author is clearly well–;versed in the legal and practical nuances of transferring data from the EU to other jurisdictions and offers both a detailed analysis of the law, as well as many practical insights to addressing such challenges. For those of us who deal with EU data transfers on a regular basis, the book is a great resource and will definitely be sitting on my desk." -- Orrie Dinstein, Privacy practitioner at a Fortune 100 company

"Bender on Privacy and Data Protection is a reference book that can meet the needs of everyone -- those just beginning in or who have a curiosity to learn more about the field, as well as experienced practitioners needing examples and guidance on how to approach or solve a particular challenge. It is part encyclopedia, part history book and part a collection of case law and interpretations showcasing the wealth of knowledge and experience of the author. A comprehensive synopsis is indexed at the beginning of every chapter enabling quick identification of just the right topic -- and perhaps the best feature -- it is written for lawyers and non–;lawyers alike! I highly recommend this book." -- Sandra R. Hughes, Past Chairman International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP)

"This book provides an immense amount of timely and important material on an area that has become increasingly complex and important in practice. Bender has done an incredible job. Among other things, the coverage of state Data Breach Notification and other privacy-related laws is excellent and invaluable for practitioners, including in-house counsel." -- Raymond T. Nimmer, Dean & Leonard H. Childs Professor of Law, University of Houston Law Center

"Bender on Privacy and Data Protection is the one resource I would recommend to every professional concerned about understanding the plethora of privacy and data protection laws and issues. David Bender's meticulous and...
