The new Connecticut data privacy law—inconveniently titled “An Act Concerning Personal Data Privacy and Online Monitoring” (hereinafter referred to as “CPDPA”) was signed into law on Tuesday, May 10, 2022 and will have an effective date of July 1, 2023. The CPDPA is moderately similar to both the Colorado Privacy Act (the “CPA”) and the Virginia Consumer Data Privacy Act (“VCDPA”), with only a few minor differences.

The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), which went into effect January 1, 2020, created rights and obligations related to the collection and sale of consumer personal data. The California Privacy Rights Act (“CPRA”) was a ballot measure that was approved by California voters on November 3, 2020. The CPRA significantly amends and expands the CCPA. Notably, the majority of the provisions revising the CCPA do not become “operative” until January 1, 2023, and enforcement will apply only to violations occurring on or after January 1, 2023.
The Colorado Privacy Act (the “CPA”) was signed into law on July 8, 2021 by Governor Jared Polis, only 6 months after Virginia enacted its data privacy law, the Virginia Consumer Data Privacy Act (“VCDPA”).

With the passing of the Utah Consumer Privacy Act and Connecticut Data Privacy Act, data privacy laws are back in the focus of business owners across America. Five states now have comprehensive data privacy protection for consumers—California, Virginia, Colorado, Utah, and Connecticut.
Those privacy professionals following the California Consumer Privacy Act (also known as the CCPA) have been eagerly awaiting final regulations from the California Attorney General (CA AG). Unfortunately, we will have to wait a little longer. On February 10, 2020, the CA AG published the Revised Proposed Regulations. This means that the California public will have another opportunity to submit their comments on the CCPA regulations before the CA AG makes additional revisions. The deadline to submit written comments is February 25, 2020. From there, the CA AG has until July 1, 2020 to finalize the regulations.
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.
