HIPAA, the Brown Act and the Public Records Act

California Fire Chiefs Association

The law regarding what information should and should not be made available to the public is constantly changing. As new technology comes out, the laws protecting the privacy rights of individuals versus transparency of local agencies also evolve. Best Best & Krieger Of Counsel Sigrid Asmundson will present "Staying out of Legal Hot Water: An Overview and Update of New Requirements Under HIPAA, the Brown Act and the Public Records Act" at the California Fire Chiefs Association's Annual Administrative Fire Services Section Educational Forum. She will provide a brief overview and update of changes to the three major transparency and confidentiality laws:

  • The Public Records Act
