In this episode of Serious Privacy, Paul Breitbarth of Catawiki and Dr. K Royal of Outschool take some time to review recent events in the privacy / data protection world. This week, this means they cover the Connecticut Act concerning Personal Data Privacy and Online Monitoring Act - the PDPOM… Paul has a cool name for it. Connecticut’s act passed on May 10, 2022 and takes effect July 1, 2023 - along with CPRA and Virginia on January 1, 2023; Colorado also on July 1, 2023; Utah on December 31, 2023 Please also see the recent state laws webinar from TrustArc and the state whitepapers.
This leads into the Roe v. Wade US Supreme Court leaked draft decision and then on to Europe with a study conducted by the Radboud University in the Netherlands, imec-COSIC, KU Leuven (a Catholic research university in the city of Leuven, Belgium), and University of Lausanne in Switzerland. These researchers looked at thousands of websites and their “leaky forms.” Leaky forms are those that capture data before the individual submits it, so companies get a lot of data that they should not have, including passwords. This may not be purposeful, but it is concerning. The full paper is published here.
