While many countries throughout the world have enacted comprehensive consumer privacy laws, the United States has not been successful in establishing a federal privacy framework in the last decade. As a result, many states have begun enacting their own consumer privacy frameworks. This year, however, the American Data Privacy and Protection Act (ADPPA) became the first federal legislation to gain traction in Congress. While it faces many hurdles prior to enactment, if enacted, the ADPPA will fundamentally change privacy law in the United States. Even if not enacted, this progress represents a clear indication that federal privacy legislation may soon be on the horizon while state privacy laws continue to emerge.

Join Husch Blackwell and ACC-Wisconsin for a discussion on the status of the ADPPA and the current status of privacy laws in the United States. We’ll also provide recommendations on how to prepare for the continued uncertainty in the privacy regulatory space.


  • What is the current consumer privacy landscape in the United States?
  • How will that change if ADPPA is enacted?
  • What is the current status of the ADPPA?
