Protect your privacy rights on social media

Social networks may be the fastest way to relay information, but the byproduct of all that sharing is information that can be used against you in a lawsuit or investigation.

Learn how to protect your right to privacy, how to recognize and prevent an intrusion or invasion of privacy, what’s considered a reasonable expectation of privacy, how to determine who lawfully owns a social media account and what types of information others can prevent you from sharing online.

Keep the trust of your customers, clients and coworkers. Protect your reputation and your brand by learning how privacy laws apply to online social networking.

We offer separate HIPAA, SEC and FINRA compliance courses for health care and financial services providers.
