In the summer of 2018, California passed its landmark set of privacy statutes, the California Consumer Privacy Act ("CCPA"), effective January 1, 2020. Since that time, numerous other states have added their own legislation, some more data privacy driven and others more focused on data security. That amalgam of laws added to a series of state enforcement agency regulations promulgated in Colorado, New York and Vermont. Pressure from global businesses, such as AT&T and IBM, urging the federal government to create a more comprehensive consumer data privacy law should only increase the number of state - and perhaps even federal- legislative introduced.

This program was recorded as part of's Legalweek Conference on February 6th, 2020.
