The CCPA marked the dawning of a new age in US privacy. Since then, many states have tabled their own privacy bills in order to modernize privacy laws across the country. In just the first two months of 2021, Virginia enacted a new privacy law, and we have seen New York and Washington introduce, or re-introduce, comprehensive privacy bills, giving US citizens increased rights around the use of their personal data. The patchwork of state-by-state provisions has also led to increasing calls for a federal privacy law over the past 18 months.
In this session we will give an update on the key state bills currently in the legislative cycle, the status of a potential federal privacy law, and how the US privacy landscape may change in the next 12 months.
Key takeaways include:
- A greater understanding of the state of US privacy
- The status of a federal privacy law, the likelihood of this passing, and its potential timeline
- Predictions for the US privacy landscape for 2021
