A new privacy law signed last month is a reminder that data protection and privacy are not just issues for companies who must comply with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In the United States, regulators at the state level are turning their attention to companies who collect and use personal information – and they are putting in place their own rules about how it should be protected and managed responsibly.
What the Oregon law makes clear is that privacy policies – and data protection in general – are not just a concern for companies collecting data about EU citizens and that must meet the requirements of the GDPR. State lawmakers in the U.S. understand the power of personal data and are moving to protect citizens against its misuse. Companies are wise to take steps now to address this issue, as we can expect more activity like this in the states.
