“Stark Imbalance” of Privacy Protection across US States, According to Private Internet Access
Data privacy protection in the United States varies significantly between states, creating opportunities for data breaches and exploitation of personal information, says Private Internet Access (PIA), a leading VPN service provider. To shed light on this issue, PIA conducted a study comparing digital privacy legislations across the country.
California emerged as the state with the strongest privacy protection, having implemented the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) in 2020 and subsequently strengthening it with the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA). Connecticut, Colorado, and Virginia also ranked highly due to their clear data-sharing policies, proactive approach to data breaches, and investments in digital security.
