Conn. Privacy Law Hikes Pressure on Congress to Set Rules
Data Security & Privacy attorney Rachel Marmor was mentioned in a Law360 article about Connecticut's privacy law and the increased pressure on Congress to set a firm federal standard for consumer privacy. Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont signed the nation's fifth consumer privacy law on May 10. This law requires businesses to allow consumers to access, correct, delete and opt out of the sale or processing of their personal information for targeted advertising and profiling purposes. Ms. Marmor believes there will be an increased pressure on companies to apply these rights and obligations nationally.
"We're seeing more focus on nationwide rollout because for a lot of companies it may not be a great proposition to tell customers that they don't get a particular right because they don't live in one of the five states that have enacted laws," she said.
