🕵️ How GC’s can get in front of new privacy requirements and regulations 

For now, California is the lone state with new online privacy measures, courtesy of Assembly Bill 5. But these laws are likely coming everywhere else soon. Checkr’s Irene Liu explains on ABA Journal how to be on top of the changes.  

  1. Start advocating now: Talk to lobbyists and lawmakers throughout the US and try to convince them about the importance of setting uniform standards across state lines. Join a trade association related to these concerns. 

  1. Focus on consistency: When you are faced with a handful of different laws, try to use language that can be broadly applied across jurisdictions.

  1. Talk to other companies: Many people and companies have found privacy regulations to be difficult. Getting ahead of the curve -- with the help of others -- will be beneficial for all.
