IAPP Panel on Federal Privacy Legislation: Obstacles and Opportunities

Speaker: Kate Goodloe, Managing Director, BSA | The Software Alliance

BSA | The Software Alliance’s Kate Goodloe joins a panel discussion on state legislative efforts in Congress, the need for privacy legislation, and the potential impact on emerging technologies.

As legislators rush to enact new privacy laws in the states, similar efforts at the federal level have moved slowly. In this session, a panel will discuss the state of legislative efforts in Congress, breaking down the substance of current proposals and the political and policy disagreements that have become barriers to enactment. Among other things, panelists will discuss the need for federal privacy legislation, the relationship between current proposals and existing laws, the potential impact on emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, and the debates over preemption, enforcement mechanisms, and other topics.
