Data privacy is an important and evolving issue in the United States. Various national and statelevel laws and regulations protect the collection, storage, and use of personal information. At the national level, there are several federal agencies charged with the enforcement of applicable laws and regulations, including the Federal Trade Commission (the “FTC”), the Department of Health and Human Services (the “DHS”), and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (the “CFPB”). The distributed enforcement duties among various agencies results from the lack of a single, comprehensive law relating to the protection of personal information.
