The Delete Act, under the California Privacy Rights Act & Data Broker Law, may soon empower consumers with the ability to delete their personal data from all registered data brokers in California with a single request. If approved by Gov. Gavin Newsom, businesses beyond California need to be ready for its ripple effects.

Dr. Chris Pierson, CEO and Founder of BlackCloak, emphasizes that tech leaders, even outside the data broker realm, should be proactive in considering the broader implications on data security and potential risks.

With other states like Vermont, Texas, and Oregon already having data broker regulations, and the national landscape on data privacy evolving, it’s essential for businesses to stay informed and prepared.
