As data breaches continue to proliferate, and in the absence of federal data privacy legislation, state legislatures across the country have strengthened their existing privacy statutes, and have created new ones, with an increased focus on consumer protection. This program, presented by Daniel Marvin and Alex D'Amico of Morris Mahoney LLP, will provide an overview of the emerging trends in this legislation, with an emphasis on how the states are shifting their focus towards compressive data privacy laws that put more control over how personal data is used into the hands of consumers. The program will also review the latest developments in data breach class action lawsuits, including both constitutional standing issues and substantive claim analysis, to identify trends and topics of interest to anyone providing advice or counsel to clients in this area.
