Washington State Privacy Act: Is the 3rd Time the Charm?

Updated April 12, 2021 at 11:30am: Sunday night's House session ended without a vote on the Washington Privacy Act. The House proposed twenty-five amendments to the bill that weren't debated prior to the end of the session, not allowing for a vote. At this time, it is unclear if the bill will still be under consideration. We will update as we learn more. 

The state of Washington has made alterations to the proposed consumer privacy act, SB 5062, in the hopes that it can be the latest privacy legislation to pass. Previous attempts to pass the Washington Privacy Act have been halted due to disagreement on the limited private right of action. In an effort to compromise, adjustments have been made to that portion of the bipartisan bill.

In the first half of 2020 alone, data breaches significantly increased by 273% compared to 2019, making privacy laws and regulations such as the CCPA paramount in protecting consumer rights.

What is Privacy Automation?

The CCPA grants privacy rights to California’s consumers, which gives them the right to request access, delete, and modify their data. Granting these rights to individuals can place a significant burden on businesses because they must know exactly what data they hold, where, and in what context, which can be an extremely complex process to unfold.
