California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA): Are you ready?
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), a data protection law meant to provide California consumers more control over their personal information will soon be effective on January 1, 2020.The law imposes obligations on businesses that collect and process personal information on California consumers to disclose information collection, sharing, sale, and use practices, and to give those consumers rights to access, delete, and restrict certain uses of personal information, among other rights. The broad scope of the law means that businesses outside of California still may be required to comply if they process personal data on California consumers. Note: This event is webcast only.
With the effective date of the new law quickly approaching, McDonald Hopkins' Christine Czuprynski, Joelle Dvir, and Amanda Martin will be discussing:
- Key distinctions between CCPA and GDPR
- Scope of the CCPA's impact
- Key definitions of "personal information" and "consumer"
- Consumer rights of access and deletion
- Compliance obligations for businesses and fines for CCPA violations
- Any recent updates including amendments and implementing regulations, if available
- Similar proposals in other states
