On March 2, Virginia became the nation’s second state to adopt a comprehensive data privacy law—and the first state to enact such protection of its own accord. Introduced by Senator David W. Marsden, the progressive Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act (VCDPA) reflects many of the consumer rights granted under California’s privacy laws—but goes a step further—by aligning with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation in a few critical areas.
Spirion’s Scott Giordano, VP and Sr. Counsel, Privacy and Compliance, has the privilege to sit down with Senator Marsden to discuss the spark behind the introduction of the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act and the nuances of the VCDPA for companies doing business in Virginia or marketing to Virginian citizens.
Can’t miss topics include:
- Who must comply with the VCDPA?
- Why is the VCDPA important for Virginia residents?
- What are the business obligations of VCDPA?
- How will VCDPA be enforced?
- What additional state legislation is expected across the U.S. in 2021?
