This Note sheds light on the major legal issues surrounding the numerous data breaches that plague our modern technology-driven society. Current laws in the United States vary widely in how they handle the resolution of harm to unsuspecting victims of data breaches. The issue of Article III standing is commonly at the forefront of the conflict and discussion in this area, which has resulted in a substantial circuit split in the United States. The newly enacted California Consumer Privacy Act will likely have a major impact in this area of the law and will undoubtedly influence how consumers’ personal information is handled in the years to come.
