In a piece for Lawfare, Atlantic Council Cyber Statecraft Initiative Fellow Justin Sherman writes about defining "data brokers" in a proposed U.S. privacy law. Sherman looks at laws in California and Vermont, as well as a report from the Federal Trade Commission, as areas where lawmakers could take inspiration when crafting a definition for data brokers. "Federal privacy legislation will not be sufficiently comprehensive without substantial attention to the data sales and transfers that underpin the data surveillance economy itself," Sherman writes. Editor's note: Baker McKenzie Partner Lothar Determann covered data brokers in this excerpt from his book, “California Privacy Law, Fourth Edition.”
