Many more states within the US are leading the legislative charge to follow California, Colorado and Virginia to pass Privacy Acts into law. From New York and Massachusetts to North Carolina and Ohio, moves are afoot. This panel will discuss these moves but also explore whether 2022 could be the year when we finally see a Federal Privacy Law in the USA under the Biden administration.
