US Federal and State Privacy Watch
Since the passing of the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, industry, Congress and the White House have all taken steps toward the creation of a U.S. federal privacy law. What this law will look like — and when and if it will happen — are still very much in question, but day-by-day it’s looking more likely that a federal law is in the United States’ future. While the wait is on for a federal privacy law, many states have taken matters into their own hands and are in the process of or have already passed state data protection laws.
