On July 1, 2023, Connecticut will become the latest state within the United States to have its own data privacy regulation. It will join California, Virginia, Colorado, and Utah as the only other states with similar regulations.

The Connecticut Data Privacy Act (CTDPA) carries several provisions that have become a global mainstay in most privacy regulations, such as data subject rights, lawful bases for data processing, clearly defined penalties, and a clear exclusive body with regulatory authority related to enforcing the CTDPA.

Naturally, having a clear understanding of what responsibilities the CTDPA places on an organization as well as their key obligations towards users can be vital in an organization’s attempts to create a reliable and effective CTDPA compliance program.
