Virginia's New Data Privacy Law: An Uncertain Next Step for State Data Protection




November 4, 2021 2:00PM–3:00PM

Privacy law is changing rapidly, and lawyers must contend with a bewildering array of new laws that seem to be appearing at a blistering pace. Virginia’s new privacy law, the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act (VCDPA), is just one of several new state laws taking their cues from the comprehensive European GDPR and California’s Consumer Privacy Act. Because the VCDPA and its counterparts impose an array of new rights, compliance requirements, and enforcement concerns, understanding the practical implications is imperative.
