September 2019 Newsletter

Here are highlights from our latest issue:

What’s the State of U.S. State Privacy Regulations?

update on US state data privacy regulationsOn Tuesday, California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) co-author and privacy advocate Alastair Mactaggart announced a 2020 ballot measure designed to build on the CCPA and specifically strengthen Californians’ control over the collection of their financial and health data. It also proposes rigid penalties for companies that improperly sell and share data about children.

While CCPA is getting tightened, other states are attempting to follow the Golden State’s lead
— one with success and several without — as we shared this week on our blog.

We also covered news from earlier this month, where CEOs of well-known companies that include American Express, JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Salesforce, urged the U.S. congress to pass a comprehensive national data privacy law.
