Tennessee Passes the Tennessee Information Protection Act (TIPA)

Tennessee has become the latest state in the United States of America (US) to have enacted a comprehensive data privacy regulation. The Tennessee Information Protection Act (TIPA) contains several provisions that have become a staple of state data privacy laws within the US.
However, there are instances where TIPA stands apart from some of its sister data privacy regulations owing to its emphasis on ensuring an affirmative defense for organizations that demonstrate a willingness to inculcate strict data privacy measures via the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) privacy framework.
It shares various other provisions with other state data privacy regulations passed recently in Virginia and Indiana while being stricter in other instances, such as giving Tennessee courts the right to award treble damages for willful or knowing violations.
