Cybersecurity And Privacy Policy To Watch In 2021

January 3, 2021, Law360

Lindsey Tonsager and Kurt Wimmer are quoted in Law360 regarding the major cybersecurity and privacy policy issues to watch in 2021.

Ms. Tonsager spoke about the ramp up in California Consumer Privacy Act enforcement. She says, “The agency [California Privacy Protection Agency] will have the broadest authority in the country to issue regulations on topics like automated decision-making tools that aren't typically core privacy issues, and how they interpret and enforce the law is likely where we're going to see a lot of the changes from the CCPA moving forward.”

Mr. Wimmer discusses Congress’s push to enact a uniform federal consumer data privacy standard, saying maturation is likely to help move things along in 2021. “The difference this year is that we've had past years, and what's happened in the past few years has been super helpful in flushing out what various members of Congress think is important in privacy legislation. So rather than letting a thousand flowers bloom, it's more likely that the [Commerce] Committee will focus on moving a proposal or set of proposals through,” he adds.
