Emerging Tech Law Series: Updates on Data Privacy

Interview by Jonathan Kersting

Earlier this year, Pennsylvania’s Breach of Personal Information Notification Act (BPINA), underwent its first major update since it was signed into law in June 2006. The Amended BPINA went into effect on May 2, 2023.

Ember Holmes, an associate in Babst Calland’s Corporate and Commercial and Emerging Technologies groups, details how the Amended BPINA affects all Pennsylvania entities that store information belonging to Pennsylvania residents, but has the most significant impact on state agencies and entities that contract with state agencies.

Ember also tells us about what businesses are facing with new requirements in data privacy, what's in store for 2024 and how to be sure your company is in compliance.
