The Year 2023 is shaping up to be the next big year in data privacy. With the enactment of the Consumer Data Protection Act (“CDPA”) on March 2, 2021, Virginia joined California as the second U.S. state to enact comprehensive data privacy rights legislation. Virginia’s CDPA comes on the heels of California’s passage of its California Privacy Rights Act (“CPRA”), which amends the infamous California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). Both Virginia’s CDPA and California’s CPRA take effect January 1, 2023.

Cybersecurity remains one of the top concerns of companies across the country, especially as companies continue to operate, or plan to operate again, in a remote work environment. KMK Law is a proud sponsor of the NKU Cybersecurity Workshop Series, a premier event in the region.
As businesses continue to operate remotely, data security is more important than ever. Given this new environment of millions of employees working remotely, it is not surprising that there has been a significant uptick in ransomware attacks over the last two months.
As employees continue to work from home during the COVID-19 pandemic, more and more businesses (including courts) are turning to alternative forms of face-to-face meetings by utilizing video conferencing applications. These virtual video-chat meetings prompt users to use the cameras and microphones on their electronic devices (such as a phones, laptops, or tablets) to connect with other individuals using the application and see and hear the other person(s) they are chatting with in real time.

As we ring in the New Year, privacy professionals are collectively holding their breath: January 1, 2020 marked the effective date of the California Consumer Privacy Act, also known as the CCPA.
Every month, we see a new set of privacy best practices or a new set of regulations proposed or adopted by a state, Congress, the White House, or countries around the globe. The versions of best practices continue to multiply and the layers of regulation continue to expand. Every new group or political entity wants to out-perform the last – but has this one-upmanship gone too far?
KMK Law recently hosted its Third Annual Cybersecurity & Privacy Seminar. This seminar was developed for business owners of various sizes and for those in senior positions in Information Governance, Compliance/Risk Management, Human Resources, Legal and/or Information Technology.
On November 2, 2018 Ohio’s new Data Protection Act went into effect. The Ohio DPA creates a new statutory affirmative defense against data breach tort claims and identifies specific cybersecurity frameworks that are now presumptively reasonable. KMK Law and Gratia, Inc. partnered together to discuss the impact of Ohio DPA on businesses, the steps companies need to take as a result, and what this “safe harbor” really means.
September 2018 was a busy month for data privacy. We expect the next several months to be extremely active as well, especially with the number of new complaints and data breach notices filed in Europe since May. We will continue to monitor and update developments as the data privacy framework continues to evolve.
