2023 was a landmark year for privacy law, featuring numerous developments at the federal, state and international levels, ranging from newly enacted statutes to massive regulatory enforcement actions. Early signs already indicate that 2024 is likely to be just as active for companies, as legislatures and regulators continue to forge ahead in developing and implementing new legal frameworks to manage a rapidly evolving field.
This year, we expect to see continued developments at the state level (with the emergence of new state privacy law proposals and implementation and enforcement of recently enacted state laws), from federal regulators (where the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), in particular, is positioned to continue its recent regulatory focus on topics such as health data, adtech, sensitive customer information and artificial intelligence (AI)), and perhaps even the federal legislative level. Furthermore, ongoing legal developments related to AI are likely to have privacy law impacts—and vice versa. Understanding these trends will be critical not just for privacy professionals but for legal departments more generally.
During this webinar, WilmerHale lawyers will discuss the top privacy trends that businesses need to be paying attention to for the coming year and beyond.
The specific topics they will cover include:
- FTC activity;
- New US state privacy laws;
- Health privacy law updates;
- Updated rules pertaining to children’s data;
- Relevant international developments; and
- Emerging technologies (including biometrics and AI).
