You realize the memorandum is not part of your consultant responsibilities, but you decide to assist the vice president and to respond to the board memorandum. The memorandum will require research and an explanation to the board of directors of what actions need to be undertaken. The memorandum addresses the board of directors' decision to implement a screening system to monitor worldwide employee use of the Internet browsers and company e-mail systems because the number of employees has grown so large. The employee growth has resulted in a large backlog of information on customers and employees including some personal medical information. Additional customer information is retained in a separate database on customers from the Internet operations.

Define comparative law and international law.
Discuss how these concepts are related in the area of employee information privacy.
Compare and contrast the privacy laws of the United States with the EU data directives.
