Should the U.S. implement a national policy… or should regulations be left solely to 50 states? How will each impact our success on the national and international business/trading spectrum? Will our treatment of data be in accordance with EU and other trading partners laws? With leaders in this space who are close to the issues, we explore how this may unfold.
How the Election Could Change Privacy Legislation with Kate Flocken & Tyler Griffin
Kate Flocken and Ty Griffin sit down with Jerry and Jody to provide an up-close look at the current state of play for legislation that would create a national privacy/data protection regime.
This week, we're talking with Daniel Solove, law professor and founder of TeachPrivacy.
Jim Dempsey is the Executive Director, Berkeley Center for Law and Technology and formerly held leadership roles at the Center for Democracy and Technology.
Jim Dempsey provided one of the inaugural podcasts of the ADCG series and discussed the lengthy and unsuccessful attempts to enact a federal privacy law. In light of the EU GDPR, California’s passage of the CCPA, and the EU Court of Justice invalidating the US Privacy Shield, he ponders whether the U.S. needs a federal privacy law and what that might look like. The discussion covers likely stumbling blocks to a federal privacy law, such as preemption of state law and a private right of action, similar to that provided in the CCPA. As a professor of cybersecurity issues at UC Berkeley, Jim also explores the potential cybersecurity aspects of privacy legislation and the role cybersecurity requirements have played in breach notification laws.
Welcome to the U.S. National Privacy Legislation Podcast
Will the United States, the largest economy in the world, enact national privacy and data protection legislation? Or will privacy regulation be left to the 50 states and other countries. The borderless nature of the Internet seems to call for a uniform legislation, but enactment is uncertain.
Data is the lifeblood of our economy and the economic competitiveness issues, domestically and internationally, loom large in this debate. The objective of this podcast is to hear all points of view on what promises to be one of the most momentous public policy debates of the next decade.
