Internet Privacy


Mobile banking is a relatively new banking service that is rapidly gaining popularity with consumers and businesses. More than half of the 100 largest banks in the United States offer mobile banking and approximately 19 million U.S. households use this service.

Social Media

Responsible Social Media & Social NetworkingPersonal blogs, message boards, social media and social networking sites, and more... These online venues and resources are both a blessing and a curse for businesses large and small, with a myriad of benefits and potential hazards for employers and employees alike. Social media and networking sites, such as Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn, have become increasingly popular venues to post opinions and network with friends and colleagues online. However, just one inappropriate comment, tweet, text, or post could instantly bring a range of legal liabilities and unforeseen consequences for both employees and their employers. These consequences can include a damaged reputation and damaged business relationships, negative publicity, lawsuits, loss of customer trust, and a loss of business or opportunity. An organization’s success relies on all employees understanding these risks and acting with integrity and responsibility when using social media.
