Upcoming Data Summit Series Events -

In March of this year, Virginia signed into law the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act (VCDPA) joining California (CCPA) as the second state to enact comprehensive data privacy legislation. Other states are also working on their own privacy laws. Data Privacy legislation means more than just legal and business challenges for corporations, it means empowering the consumer to have more access and control over their data which is a valuable commodity. In the April rvaTech Data Summit, come and join the discussion as business leaders share their thoughts on what the recent Data Privacy legislation means for the business community as well as for you, the consumer.
