WASHINGTON, DC – January 13, 2020 – Statement by Future of Privacy Forum CEO Jules Polonetsky regarding the introduction of the Washington Privacy Act (Washington State Senate Bill 6281):

“The Washington Privacy Act is the most comprehensive state privacy legislation proposed to date. The bill addresses concerns raised last year and proposes strong consumer protections that go beyond the California Consumer Privacy Act. It includes provisions on data minimization, purpose limitations, privacy risk assessments, anti-discrimination requirements, and limits on automated profiling that other state laws do not.”
