Privacy is a critical concern for consumers, businesses, and lawmakers. In Congress, there is bipartisan and bicameral support for legislation addressing data privacy. Still, important questions remain about how to protect consumer privacy while establishing consistent standards for companies that collect and use personal data.

Our panel discussion will explore how Congress can build upon state laws, including the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and international examples such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), to develop comprehensive federal legislation that protects consumer privacy across the country. Are there ways Congress can improve on the CCPA and the GDPR to better protect consumers and provide clarity to businesses? What other solutions can be included in a federal law to address key privacy concerns? Please join us for a lively discussion.

The event is open to the public. Please RSVP by 12 p.m. October 8. If you have any questions please email events@bsa.org.
