Microsoft voiced its support for the revamped Washington Privacy Act. Microsoft Corporate Vice President for Global Privacy and Regulatory Affairs and Chief Privacy Officer Julie Brill writes in a blog post the bill has four "core components" the tech company believes should be in any comprehensive privacy bill: corporate responsibility, consumer empowerment, transparency and strong enforcement. "We believe advocating for laws like these are good for our customers and important for holding the industry to higher standards than the law does today," Brill writes. "We are committed to working with lawmakers and stakeholders to ensure the final bill provides comprehensive privacy protection for all Washingtonians." Editor's note: Faegre Baker Daniels Associate and former IAPP Westin Research Fellow Mitchell Noordyke, CIPP/E, CIPP/US, CIPM, compares the WaPA to the California Consumer Privacy Act in this piece for Privacy Tracker.
