Protecting confidential information remains a significant issue nowadays, encouraging further development and regulatory enforcement. Several states are now exploring laws on comprehensive data protection and privacy, following the passage of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) in 2020. Accordingly, Biden’s administration has issued an executive order to establish rules focusing on areas including the regulation of data collection, user surveillance, and consumer privacy.
These privacy laws affect both local and multinational organizations, particularly when it comes to collecting consumer data for business transactions. Thus, companies must be well-versed of all emerging developments and must be able to re-evaluate their compliance programs based on these updates to avoid violations and other liabilities.
Join a panel of key thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group as they provide a comprehensive discussion of the recent developments and critical issues surrounding data protection and privacy legislation.
