California and the European Union have both passed extensive data privacy laws in the past year. Together, the two laws will apply to a huge swath of data both in the United States and abroad -- will they prove effective in protecting sensitive consumer data, or will they be an excessive burden on companies, both large and small, which capture user data? Are these laws even enforceable, or will federal legislation and even international norms need to be standardized to protect user data in the digital age? Join a panel of experts at State of the Net as they discuss the California Consumer Privacy Act, GDPR, and the future of commercial privacy in the United States and abroad.
