Our Data Privacy in the US online course is broken down into three modules, including knowledge check questions throughout. These are:

1 – Data privacy vs data protection

This module covers the differences between US data privacy and GDPR-style data protection. You will learn that there may be regulatory activity at both federal and state levels and that the US does not have a unified approach to personal information.

2 – A variable landscape

This module demonstrates the fact that data privacy regulations may vary from state to state, including the option of no data privacy legislation being present at the state level. It details how the landscape is constantly changing and may already be different from the case studies you see presented in the course

There is also a comparison of three case studies which illustrates the differences in legislation between states showing that some states have comprehensive regulations, some states have no data privacy legislation, whilst others will have legislation soon.

3 – Finding the right path

This module will provide you with some general advice for how to navigate the complex and changing nature of data privacy in the US. It will focus on using common sense and good information security practice, always following company policy, and seeking help from the privacy, compliance, or information  security team when in doubt.
