Briefing on New State Data Privacy Laws with a Spotlight on Tennessee’s New NIST Privacy Framework-Related Affirmative Defense

Venable LLP


A patchwork of state data privacy laws is quickly blanketing the country. In 2023 at least six newly enacted laws are being added to the existing privacy requirements across the states. These new laws add to the increasing complexity and challenges encountered by organizations as they navigate the legal environment. Our panel will discuss the latest on privacy happenings at the state level, including newly passed state privacy laws in Iowa, Indiana, Montana, Florida, Washington, and Tennessee and others. Of note, Tennessee is the first state to enact a privacy law that explicitly requires a written privacy program that “reasonably conforms” to the NIST Privacy Framework: A Tool for Improving Privacy Through Enterprise Risk Management. During our panel, you will learn how your organization can leverage the NIST Privacy Framework to build a robust privacy program to meet your compliance obligations.
