On March 2, 2021, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam signed the Consumer Data Protection Act into law, making Virginia the second U.S. state to enact comprehensive data privacy legislation of general applicability.  The law’s requirements will take effect on January 1, 2023, which is the same day that requirements under the new California Privacy Rights Act (“CRPA”) become operative. 

Please join us for a discussion of how Virginia’s Consumer Data Protection Act affects data privacy in the U.S. and how it compares to other significant data privacy laws, such as the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation, the California Consumer Privacy Act and the CPRA.  Our panelists will discuss:

  • Background and legislative context - 15 minutes
  • Applicability and key components of Virginia’s new law with comparisons to other significant data privacy laws - 30 minutes
  • Steps to prepare for compliance with Virginia’s new law and strategies for maintaining a privacy program that can adapt to the changing legislative and regulatory landscape - 15 minutes

Bohannon, Director of Government Affairs at Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP;  (iii) Aaron P. Simpson, a Partner at Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP; and (iv) Holly A.
