With 2020 finally in the rearview mirror, 2021 looks like it will be filled with potential data privacy legislation in the U.S. Of course, front and center right now resides the Washington Privacy Act, but the Pacific Northwest state isn't the only one in play. So far, legislation has been proposed in Connecticut, Minnesota, New York, Oklahoma and Virginia, among others. This all comes while a new presidential administration takes hold in Washington, D.C., along with a Congress controlled — though by a slim margin — by the Democrats. What should privacy pros make of all this state activity, and what are the prospects for federal privacy legislation? Host Jedidiah Bracy, CIPP, discusses these pressing issues with Husch Blackwell Partner David Strauss.
