Web Conference: Finding Sweet Spots for Successful Compromise on a Federal Privacy Law

This web conference was a part of the IAPP Global Privacy Summit Online 2021.  

Original broadcast date: May 3, 2021

In 2020, U.S. Republicans and Democrats failed to reach a consensus on a slew of privacy-related bills. This year offers a better opportunity to bridge disagreements and reach a long-awaited deal. This panel includes representatives of two key constituencies working seriously toward consensus. Learn from them what the prospects for legislation are in this Congress, promising areas where disagreements may be bridged, where a final bill is likely to land, and how your California Consumer Privacy Act– and EU General Data Protection Regulation–compliant programs are likely to change as a result of federal privacy legislation.
