Annual Review: 2022 and Trends for 2023

Looking back on 2022, the data privacy and protection landscape has continued to evolve at a rapid pace:

  • The EU-US Data Protection Framework and draft adequacy decision usher in a new era for data transfers, likely to be finalized in 2023;
  • New state privacy laws enacted, and five (California, Colorado, Connecticut, Utah, Virginia) are effective in 2023, with the first Attorney General enforcement action under the California Privacy Protection Act (CCPA);
  • The federal American Data Privacy and Protection Act (ADPPA) passed congressional committee, and remains a relevant legislative proposal in 2023.
  • The data security and safeguarding of reproductive health information and other sensitive information is of elevated importance following the Supreme Court’s decision overturning Roe v. Wade;
  • The Federal Trade Commission continues to play the role of de factor privacy regulator, with headline making enforcement actions concerning minor data, dark patters, and data breaches.
  • This year saw the first federal criminal prosecution and conviction of a former CIO concerning the handling of a data breach (Joe Sullivan), and the FTC’s naming of an executive in a civil consent order (Drizzly Consent Decree).
