Week #11: Data Privacy
Ben Goldberg - 05 November 2021
Hello LUGers! This week Kyri will be giving a talk on data privacy that she describes as follows:
Data privacy is becoming an increasingly important topic as companies collect more data on their customers and data breaches become more common. While data privacy laws have been around for a long time, they have gotten a lot more attention since the General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, was passed in the European Union in 2016. Since then, several states in the US have passed their own privacy laws. What does this mean for companies and consumers? Which states have the best protections? And should the US pass a national privacy law?
