The State of US Privacy Law

Cooley cyber/data/privacy partner David Navetta was one of nine presenters who led this full-day training workshop.

2023 brought an avalanche of new US compliance requirements for privacy programs. If you have trouble keeping pace, you are not alone. In this practical workshop, a rotating cast of privacy legal practitioners – whose jobs are to stay on top of the avalanche – will dive into the details of current and emerging obligations. From the 14 comprehensive state laws in effect, or on their way, to new regulations in California and Colorado adding weight to their frameworks, there are important pivots to privacy programs that must be made. In addition to implementing the patchwork of comprehensive data privacy laws, institutions must adapt to new sectoral privacy laws, from local regulations on algorithmic decision-making to aggressive laws targeting broad categories of location, health and biometric data. This workshop gave participants the tools you need to deal with the ever-expanding scope of rules to which privacy teams must adapt.

A Conversation With CPPA Executive Director Ashkan Soltani

Cooley cyber/data/privacy partner and practice group co-chair Travis LeBlanc will engaged in a conversation with Ashkan Soltani, executive director of the California Privacy Protection Agency (CPPA).

The CPPA is the only enforcement body in the US with authority exclusively dedicated to data privacy. After the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) became effective last year, the agency wasted no time beginning investigations, including an announced review of connected vehicle manufacturers and related technologies. The agency also has been busy with the new Delete Act, using its rulemaking authority to issue draft rules on cybersecurity audits, risk assessments and automated decision-making. As regulations are finalized and enforcement actions are announced, California will likely continue to set the agenda for privacy – and even some artificial intelligence governance practices. LeBlanc had a conversation with Soltani on CPPA priorities, rulemaking and other ongoing activities that could affect privacy programs across the country.

Privacy Litigation Trends: Past, Present and Future

Tiana Demas, cyber/data/privacy partner at Cooley, presented alongside Danielle Pierre, litigation counsel at Google.

Over the past six years, the number of federal privacy lawsuits filed annually has more than doubled. In this think tank session, participants heard from lawyers on the front lines of defending these cases discussing the types of laws plaintiffs have leveraged, trends and what’s on the horizon. The session included a discussion of how to navigate legal risk in an ever-changing space, as well as a lively Q&A.


  • Key laws that have been leveraged in privacy lawsuits – including state wiretap laws, the Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA), the Video Privacy Protection Act (VPPA) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)
  • Statistical analysis of outcomes
  • Anticipated trends for 2024 and beyond
  • Steps companies can take to mitigate legal risk in this ever-changing space
