US Federal Privacy

Congress, industry, civil society 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. The IAPP has been keeping track of the goings-on regarding a federal privacy law, and we’ve collected our news and resources here.

US State Privacy

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. The IAPP has been keeping track of individual state privacy legislation, and we regularly update this topic page with our collection of news and resources.
