Beyond California: Lesser Known State Privacy Laws with Big Consequences Webinar Recording 

Published: July, 2020

Submission: August, 2020


With federal privacy legislation stalled and indefinitely delayed, states have moved forward to push an impressive number of privacy laws forward over the last several years. Some of these laws are still relatively obscure, but are being increasingly enforced by state regulators and through litigation. This webinar will cover some of these lesser known state privacy laws, including:

  • Address Confidentiality Programs that have been adopted in many states to protect victims’ addresses and other personal information from collection and disclosure
  • Increased state-level privacy focus on passive data collection, geolocation tracking and data brokers
  • An update on what’s coming, including a review of the California Privacy Rights and Enforcement Act
