While much has been made of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), which took effect on January 1, 2020, new security laws in other states – like Nevada – have been almost entirely ignored. However, since October 1, 2019, Nevada’s Senate Bill 220 (SB 220) has required organizations with websites that collect and maintain data to establish a means through which data subjects can submit requests for the organizations not to sell their information.
Although the reach of this new law is limited as it only applies to information collected online and does not grant a private right of action to individuals, its enactment signals that Nevada is trying to keep up with the evolving ways in which information is used.
