IDC Names Securiti a Worldwide Leader in Data PrivacyView
Last Updated on November 7, 2023
In the absence of a comprehensive federal data privacy law within the United States, states have taken it upon themselves to provide appropriate protection for their residents' data. In May 2022, Connecticut became the fifth state after California, Colorado, Virginia, and Utah to pass its own comprehensive data privacy regulation.
Senate Bill 6, known as Public Act No. 22-15 and "An Act Concerning Personal Data Privacy and Online Monitoring," was signed into law by Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont. The Connecticut Data Privacy Act (CTDPA), as it has come to be known since then, will come into effect on July 1, 2023, with additional obligations such as the requirement to recognize universal opt-out becoming effective on January 1, 2025.
The CTDPA shares several similarities with its sister regulations passed in Colorado, Virginia, Utah, and California. It applies to data controllers and processors who offer products and services to Connecticut residents and control or process the personal data of at least 100,000 consumers annually or derive over 25 percent of their gross revenue from the sale of personal data while controlling or processing the personal data of 25,000 or more consumers.
The Connecticut Attorney General has exclusive enforcement authority of CTDPA, with violations constituting unfair trade practices under the Connecticut Unfair Trade Practices Act (CUTPA).
