Both houses of Virginia’s legislature recently passed the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act (S.B. 1392; H.B. 2307) (VCDPA). If approved by the state governor, the VCDPA would become the United States’ second comprehensive state privacy law behind the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). For a comparison of the VCDPA to the CCPA and the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation, see the Alston & Bird Privacy, Cyber and Data Strategy Blog.
