As the compliance deadline for the California Consumer Privacy Act approaches, Microsoft Corp. chief privacy lawyer Julie Brill is pushing state and federal policymakers to pass even stronger consumer data and privacy regulations. 

Brill wrote in a blog post published Monday that the CCPA “marks an important step toward providing people with more robust control over their data in the United States. It also shows that we can make progress to strengthen privacy protections in this country at the state level even when Congress can’t or won’t act.”
