This is the second part of a four-part series looking at U.S. information security laws and the way those laws affect security professionals. In the first part of this series, we looked at the legal framework for protection of information systems and the role of information security professionals in the creation of trade secret interests. In this installment, we will look at the legal framework for security of an enterprise's working environment from the perspective of information security professionals, with particular emphasis on the protection of communications.

I did not see Part 1, but this is a pretty detailed look at the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA), the Wire Tap Act, the Stored Communications Act and more. I think you will find it a good read and it seems like fairly valuable information.
