New Texas Data Privacy and Security Act: What It Means for Your Business

The landscape of data privacy is evolving rapidly. Texas recently joined the ranks of states prioritizing individual data protection by passing its own privacy law, the Texas Data Privacy and Security Act (TDPSA). Regardless of your business location, it’s essential to understand the implications of this law and prepare for its potential impact on your operations.

What is the TDPSA?

The TDPSA aims to safeguard the personal information of individuals. Businesses, both within and outside Texas, might need to align with this law by implementing necessary changes and making specific disclosures within their Privacy Policies. This law is set to take effect in 2024.

What Does this Mean for Your Business?

The TDPSA primarily targets larger businesses. However, under certain circumstances, it could apply to smaller businesses. The law mandates new disclosures and compliance that businesses must adhere to, placing the onus on companies to step up their data privacy measures. Failure to comply could result in severe penalties, making it critical for businesses to proactively adapt to the new requirements.
