Podcast: What Could a U.S. Federal Data Privacy and Security Law Look Like?
Congress has tried for years to pass a comprehensive federal data privacy and security law without success, which impacts consumers, industry, and security. Meanwhile, other countries and multiple U.S. states have moved forward with laws. However, the bipartisan, bicameral American Data Privacy and Protection Act (ADPPA) could be an opportunity to change this. This podcast will cover why data privacy and security legislation is important and look at the R Street Institute’s report on reaching consensus on traditional roadblocks, specific aspects of the bill like data security, the bill’s current status and possible next steps, and remaining challenges.
