FPF is excited to announce the launch of our Privacy Legislation Series, an array of educational webinars exploring topics in U.S. privacy legislation. In each webinar, experts will dive deep into one aspect of a comprehensive privacy law, discuss what makes it important for addressing privacy harms, its historical context, and how it has been addressed in other existing federal, state, or international privacy laws. Each session will be made available publicly and provide a list of additional recommended reading and resources, with the goal of providing policy experts with more tools to be better informed on data privacy legislation in 2020.

Topic #1 – Defining Covered Data
