Gov. Ralph Northam, D-Va., signed the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act into law. In doing so, Virginia became the second state to enact comprehensive privacy legislation and the first to do so on its own initiative. IAPP Westin Research Fellow Sarah Rippy breaks down the Virginia privacy bill, including its scope, exemptions, the data rights it gives to state residents and how it compares to other privacy laws.

Tuesday's signing of the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act into law was a remarkable feat and another step forward for privacy in the U.S. However, that doesn't mean the legislation was a win for everyone and comes without its share of question marks. What unique compliance challenges are in store? Is this law what everyone hoped for? How does it compare and contrast with other notable privacy standards in the U.S. and abroad? IAPP Staff Writer Joe Duball compiled reactions to issues worth considering with the CDPA.
