New Jersey became the 13th state to enact comprehensive privacy legislation when Governor Murphy signed S332 into law on January 16, 2024. The New Jersey Data Protection Act is designed to protect the personal data of New Jersey residents and imposes various obligations and requirements on persons and entities that collect or process personal data. The NJDPA will become effective and enforceable on January 15, 2025. Although the NJDPA shares many similarities with other comprehensive state privacy laws – like the California Consumer Privacy Act, the Colorado Privacy Act and the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act – there are significant differences that individuals and businesses must consider to ensure that they comply with the unique requirements of the laws of each state that may apply to business operations.
