This presentation was pre-recorded and was a part of Womble Bond Dickinson's The Evolving Dance: The Changing Roles of Company Counsel and Compliance Officers thought leadership series.
With new consumer privacy laws set to take effect in several states in 2023, nearly six in 10 executives say their organizations are very prepared to meet these requirements. Yet when asked about particular actions taken, less than half have completed important steps toward compliance. That discrepancy is one of the key findings in Womble Bond Dickinson’s 2022 State of US Data Privacy Law Compliance Survey Report, which draws on the insights of nearly 200 executives – 62% of whom hold C-suite titles. The report provides a window into where companies stand in their data privacy compliance journeys and delves into two increasingly popular forms of consumer data collection: precise geolocation data and biometric information.
Our panel will discuss key survey findings and how corporate counsel can better prepare their companies to deal with data privacy regulations on the horizon.
