On March 30, 2021, Hunton Andrews Kurth will host a webinar examining Virginia’s new consumer law.
On March 2, 2021, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam signed the Consumer Information Protection Act. This makes Virginia the second US state to have passed comprehensive data protection laws of general applicability. The requirements of the law come into force on January 1, 2023. This will be the day the requirements of California’s new Data Protection Act (“CPRA”) go into effect.
Our speakers will highlight how Virginia’s Consumer Protection Act affects privacy in the United States and how it can affect your business. We will also discuss steps you may take to prepare for the new requirements of the Consumer Data Protection Act and how you can maintain a privacy program that can adapt to the changing legal and regulatory landscape in the United States.
- The evolution of the privacy landscape and our forecasts for 2021 and beyond;
- An overview of consumer law, including who it applies to and what it requires;
- How is Consumer Law different from other major data protection laws like California’s Consumer Protection Law (CPRA) and the EU General Data Protection Regulation? and
- Strategies for maintaining a nimble data protection compliance program that can adapt to the changing landscape.
