On April 28, 2022, the Connecticut legislature passed Senate Bill 6 – what we are calling the Connecticut Data Privacy Act (CTDPA). Once signed by the Governor, Connecticut will become the fifth state—after California, Virginia, Colorado and Utah—to enact broad consumer data privacy legislation. The CTDPA is a strong consumer-oriented data privacy bill that is similar to the Colorado Privacy Act but also contains provisions drawn from the California Privacy Rights Act.
On May 5, 2022, members of Husch Blackwell’s data privacy team will host a webinar to analyze the CTDPA and how it compares to laws in California, Virginia, Colorado and Utah. During the webinar, we will:
- Identify the scope of the law and the businesses it will affect
- Analyze the exemptions and exceptions, such as the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act carve-out
- Discuss relevant definitions such as “sale” and “consent”
- Review the rights provided to Connecticut residents
- Compare the CTDPA to the California Privacy Rights Act, Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act, Colorado Privacy Act and Utah Consumer Privacy Act
