In a post-GDPR world, more and more states are considering enacting their own comprehensive privacy laws. With the absence of a federal regulation, many states have found, that in making sure their citizens’ data is adequately protected, it is necessary to pass their own privacy laws.

As of today, eleven states have enacted privacy laws, four of which are effective now; seven of which will become effective in the future. These privacy laws vary in their scope and specifics from state to state; but they all include the right for their citizens to access their data, know how said data is collected, modify or delete it, and more.
