Partner Kelly Frey contributed a chapter to the recently published e-book, "Cyber Security & Data Management in the Modern Digital Age 2019" by Financier Worldwide. Frey's chapter, “Protecting children from online predators: U.S. policy developments,” draws on recent enforcement actions by the FTC and new legislative initiatives suggesting an aggressive appetite by the federal government to enforce and augment the current laws related to the privacy and security of information collected online from minors. His chapter also addresses companies in the U.S. (or foreign companies engaging with minor users in the US) need to be aware of their obligations and parents need to better understand the critical role they play in oversight of their children’s online activities, the control they have over online vendors providing services to minors, and the hidden dangers related to online access by their children in the era of augmented online devices with audio and video capabilities.
Out of the Nashville office, Frey assists clients in corporate acquisitions/divestitures, corporation transactions, and corporate compliance. He represents companies in various information technology and intellectual property transactions, including licensing, outsourcing, technology law, and vendor relationship and management.
