California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 

California has once again taken the lead among the states in enacting data privacy legislation. The California Consumer Privacy Act, signed into law on June 28, comes right on the heels of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation. The CCPA has caused many in industry to consider whether U.S. operations now effectively need to be brought under the GDPR compliance umbrella. But the CCPA goes even further in some respects and raises new issues – ranging from application of a new nondiscrimination clause to questions about the scope of potential exposure to class action litigation. There is an expectation that the CCPA will be amended, possibly in the next several weeks, so we may also be working with a moving target.

This program provides an overview of the new law and discusses recommended approaches for preparing for the January 1, 2020, effective date.
