In a recent Q&A conducted by Divonne Smoyer and Karen Lee Lust with Connecticut Attorney General (AG) William Tong published in the IAPP Privacy Advisor, the AG discusses how he has continued Connecticut’s role as a privacy leader among the states, partnering with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission on data privacy-related matters and other compliance insights for data privacy professionals. Earlier this year, AG Tong testified in favor of Connecticut House Bill 5310, An Act Concerning Data Privacy Breaches, proposing an update of Connecticut’s breach notification laws.

AG Tong also discusses enacting consumer data rights protection laws in Connecticut. Read more in the IAPP Privacy Advisor article here.
