Data privacy undoubtedly took center stage in 2018. The European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation came into effect in May 2018, and California quickly followed suit with its own consumer privacy law – the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA). The CCPA aims to provide California residents greater transparency and control over how certain businesses use their personal information. Starting Jan. 1, 2020, California residents will, under certain circumstances, have new data privacy rights that among others, enable them to access the personal information collected about them, request their personal information be deleted, and opt out of the sale of their personal information. Businesses subject to the CCPA need to get their ducks in a row early to comply with the CCPA, which goes into effect in a few months.
During this webinar, Troutman Sanders’ attorneys, Ron Raether and Sadia Marza, will cover the scope of the CCPA, key definitions and obligations, potential exemptions, gray areas in the law, and other state legislative efforts following the CCPA. This is a great opportunity to get ahead of legislation that is clearly shaping the future of privacy laws in the United States.
