Regulator: Wyoming Attorney General ('AG')

Summary: Wyoming does not currently have a law in place that specifically regulates data protection and consumer privacy. However, the Wyoming Consumer Protection Act generally protects individuals against unfair and deceptive practices, and the Consumer Protection Unit of the AG has the authority to examine, among other things, consumer privacy invasions. Moreover, Article 5 on Credit Freeze Reports of the Consumer Protection Act provides a breach notification requirement in the event of an unauthorised acquisition of computerised data maintained by a person or business, and which is believed to cause loss or injury to a resident of Wyoming. In such cases, affected data subjects must be notified without unreasonable delay, with the AG having the authority to bring enforcement actions for non-compliance.


On 8 March 2022, the Wyoming State Governor signed House Bill ('HB') 0086, thereby enacting the Wyoming Genetic Data Privacy Act ('the Act'). The Act will go into effect on 1 July 2022 and applies to any business that collects genetic data from individuals in the state of Wyoming. As such, OneTrust DataGuidance highlights some of the key provisions of the Act, focusing on areas such as consumer rights, business obligations, and what to expect with regards to enforcement.
