Are you aware that the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) was enacted by the European Union to help protect consumer information? Yes, the GDPR is a good step forward in safeguarding the data of individuals. In the United States, there have been comparable attempts by both the federal government and states to protect data of consumers including (but not limited to) healthcare privacy data protection (such as HIPAA), the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and various similar state-enacted consumer protection laws (to name a few).
The federal and state governments are indeed taking noteworthy steps in the interest of protecting consumer data. However, California has notably stepped up the game with the California Consumer Privacy Act.
