The Complete EU-US Data Protection Laws Playbook
13 June 2022
Dear clients and friends,
The European GDPR came into force 4 years ago, and introduced a new comprehensive data protection regime affecting companies all over the world.
Until recently, the only comprehensive consumer data protection law in the United States was the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). However, a growing number of US state legislators have been adopting similar data protection regulatory regimes, many of which are the following laws which are coming into effect next year:
- The significant amendment to the CCPA – the California Consumer Privacy Act;
- The Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act;
- The Colorado Privacy Act; and
- The Utah Consumer Privacy Act.
The rise of various states’ data protection acts requires companies processing personal data on a global basis to change their regional regulatory approach and adopt a more uniform approach addressing their data protection regulatory obligations in the EU and the United States.
To assist with that, we are pleased to present our Complete EU v. US Data Protection Laws Playbook, which provides a general comparison between the relevant concepts and requirements in the aforementioned enacted 4 US data protection laws, in addition to the GDPR, consequently assisting in forming global data protection management policies and procedures.
