With new privacy laws being implemented around the worldwide and across the US, and changes being made to existing legislation, businesses are facing an uphill battle when it comes to staying on top of ever-changing laws and regulations. Many of the same pressures that prompted the European regulation are growing globally, and rapidly in America. One-third of US states have either begun the legislative process or enacted a data privacy law, and there is no indication of this momentum slowing down. These US laws may share common fundamental principles, but they differ from one another – and from the GDPR – in critical ways that complicate compliance and impact how businesses approach their US privacy program.

The dilemma for US multinationals is how to manage compliance with the growing patchwork of state and international privacy obligations. This webinar will:

  • analyze the complexity of the US privacy landscape and highlight key operational and compliance risks;
  • compare and contrast the major US privacy laws, identifying areas of overlap as well as areas where compliance will require state-specific analysis, disclosures and policies; and
  • propose a streamlined solution to implementing a US privacy compliance program and explain how to leverage existing GDPR compliance efforts.
