Minnesota has become the 18th state to enact a comprehensive consumer privacy law. On May 24, Gov. Tim Walz (D) signed the Minnesota Consumer Data Privacy Act into law to provide privacy rights to Minnesotans and to impose new requirements on businesses and organizations handling personal data. For most covered entities, the law will go into effect on July 31, 2025.

Effective May 24, 2024, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) has introduced a new online PIPEDA breach reporting form for federal institutions and businesses subject to the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA).

The past couple of years have seen a number of states enact comprehensive privacy laws. Thus far, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Utah, and Virginia have enacted state privacy laws. In July, we will see three new privacy laws take effect in Texas, Oregon, and Florida. A privacy law in Montana will become effective on October 1.
