Here in the 21st century, we in-house lawyers work in a virtual business world made up of electronic data: e-commerce, electronic records, social media sites, hacking, file sharing, e-discovery, etc.. Rows of storage racks in data centers and miles of fiber optic cables are our new frontiers, not the wide open plains of the Old West or the humming smoke stacked factories of post-World War II. At the same time that we have sailed into this unexplored ocean of electronic data, governments in America and abroad have submersed companies in regulations to a depth heretofore unfathomed.
