Episode 2: Important U.S. Privacy Regimes
By Ronald J. Coleman
Our second episode is “New Privacy Insights: GDPR, CCPA, and Beyond”. Travis LeBlanc described some of the important privacy regimes in the United States:
“In the U.S., that would be California’s Consumer Privacy Act, as well as equivalent versions from Colorado and Virginia. An additional one would be Illinois’ Biometric Privacy Law, which has been on the books for a number of years, but states and cities have gotten much more involved in the last few years in regulating biometric privacy. In fact, today in New York City, a brand new biometric privacy law goes into effect for commercial establishments that will be required to post a privacy notice if they collect biometric information, and also could be subjected to private rights of action lawsuits with very substantial penalties for violations if you’re a commercial establishment New York. All this is to say, there’s a lot of regulatory activity that is ongoing right now at the state and city levels in the United States with regard to privacy. And, just this week, you see the action in Colorado and New York City are just two examples of how much change is happening now.”
