Updated Privacy Laws Now in Effect
January 3, 2023
A spate of state laws come into effect in 2023 and, for some, the effective date is already upon us. The California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA), which amends the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act (VCDPA) both went into affect on January 1, 2023. The VCDPA is also now enforceable, while the CPRA enforcement date is July 1, 2023.
These are not the only state privacy laws that companies and individuals should be watching – the Colorado Privacy Act (CPA) and Connecticut SB6 (CTPA) both will be effective and enforceable starting on July 1, 2023 and the Utah Consumer Privacy Act (UCPA) makes it under the wire this year as well, with an effective and enforcement date of December 31, 2023.
