MEDIA ADVISORY: Spirion Hosts Exclusive Webinar with Virginia Senator David W. Marsden to Discuss the Nation's Newest State Data Protection Law

ST. PETERSBURG, FL, April 01, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ — Spirion’s Scott Giordano, VP and Sr. Counsel, Privacy and Compliance, will host an exclusive webinar with Virginia Senator David W. Marsden to discuss the recent enactment of the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act (VCDPA), which was signed into law on March 2, 2021. Virginia is the nation’s second state to adopt a comprehensive data privacy protection law.

What: Introduced by Senator Marsden, the progressive VCDPA reflects many of the consumer rights granted under California’s privacy laws but goes a step further by aligning with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation in a few critical areas. The webinar will explore the significance of Virginia’s new data protection law, what it means for consumers, and the impact it will have on companies doing business in Virginia or marketing to Virginian citizens.

When: April 15, 2021 at 1:00 P.M. ET

Where: Register to attend the online webinar.

Why: A growing number of states across the country have enacted consumer privacy legislation in response to potential personal data misuse. Virginia is the nation’s first state to proactively enact into law the comprehensive protection of its citizens’ right to privacy on its own accord.
