Episode 74: The Nexus of Cybersecurity & Privacy Legislation

In episode 74 of Cybersecurity Where You Are, co-host Sean Atkinson is joined by Brian de Vallance, Senior Advisor at Cambridge Global Advisors; and Carlos Kizzee, Senior Vice President (SVP) for Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center® (MS-ISAC®) Strategy & Plans at the Center for Internet Security® (CIS®). In recognition of Data Privacy Week on January 21-27, 2024, they discuss the nexus of cybersecurity and privacy legislation in the United States. They begin by reviewing how the privacy laws passed by U.S. states over the past several years all include a cybersecurity element – namely, the effort to implement "reasonable" cybersecurity around protecting consumers' data. They then look to the future and consider how the laws will lead to regulations and, in turn, enforcement actions that will help raise our understanding of consumer privacy rights and how they can be defended.
