The U.S. is the largest data, research and insights market in the world according to our latest Global Market Research Report.


At the same time, the U.S. is also currently seeing a variety of privacy models developing with regards to privacy, as seen with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and the proposed Washington Privacy Act (WPA). In the latest updates, the California Department of Justice recently released a second round of proposed edits to the CCPA and there are ongoing updates regarding the WPA.

However, the COVID-19 crisis may bring some matters to a halt or slow down the legislative process, and at the same time have some implications on indiviual privacy.

But what does all of this mean for your business? What is the latest in U.S. privacy law, and what points do you need to consider.



What you will take away from the session


Join Amy Yeung, Lotame's General Counsel and Chief Privacy Officer, and Kim Smouter, Head of Public Affairs and Professional Standards to learn more about:

  • An overview of the latest updates to the CCPA and what these mean for you;
  • An update on the WPA and the proposed law;
  • A quick overview of the status of a U.S. federal law on privacy;
  • COVID-19 and privacy - are there any takeaways? What should businesses consider?


Who is this webinar for?


This webinar will be useful for any business currently operating in the US or planning to do so in the future. It is also intended for any professionals wanting to impart more knowledge on the status of privacy in the US within their business, to clients, or to their colleagues.
