May 5, 2022
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CT

The Connecticut legislature just passed Senator James Maroney's Senate Bill 6, which will provide CCPA-like privacy rights to Connecticut residents. Once signed by the Governor, Connecticut will become the fifth state—after California, Virginia, Colorado and Utah—to enact broad consumer data privacy legislation. The Connecticut Data Privacy Act is a strong consumer-oriented data privacy bill that is similar to the Colorado Privacy Act but also contains provisions drawn from the California Privacy Rights Act. During this webinar, we will analyze the bill and how it compares to laws in California, Virginia, Colorado and Utah.


  • Identifying the scope of the law and the businesses it will affect
  • Analyzing the exemptions and exceptions, such as the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act carve-out
  • Discussing relevant definitions such as “sale” and “consent”
  • Reviewing the rights provided to Connecticut residents
  • Comparing the law to the California Privacy Rights Act, Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act, Colorado Privacy Act and Utah Consumer Privacy Act
