Connecticut Consumer Privacy Law Poses a Challenge for Businesses

Loeb Advanced Media & Technology senior counsel Robyn Mohr is quoted in an article published by Bloomberg Law discussing how the newly passed Connecticut Data Privacy Act (CTDPA) will likely cause additional stress and challenges for companies that are already adhering to similar compliance requirements across multiple states. Most of the state’s new privacy law will take effect on July 1, 2023.

According to the article, Connecticut’s privacy law requires opt-in consent for the processing of children’s sensitive data and requires that the processing be done in accordance with the federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act.

“You’re seeing a lot more interest and energy going into reviewing bills and legislation that affects children’s privacy,” Robyn said.

The law additionally prohibits companies from processing data belonging to minors between the ages of 13 to 16 for purposes of targeted advertising and selling without consent. “Connecticut is raising the bar in a meaningful way here,” Robyn added.
