Fortune Favors the Bold: The Enchanted Tale of the CCPA and US Data Privacy among Giants

Palo Alto

In less than two years, US companies have had to address a record number of state and local legislation based on data privacy principles that largely stem from the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which went into effect on May 25, 2018.  This new US legislation has largely addressed consumer privacy issues but has created momentum for legislation on facial recognition, AI and surveillance and has left US companies with operational and legal uncertainty. The passage of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) in June 2018, which may have looked like Jack’s magic beans at the outset, has, so far, held up to critics and set off a chain reaction in other states (e.g. Nevada and New Hampshire). The race for federal preemption emerged but a federal law on consumer privacy, which would un-seed state momentum has not yet seen the light of day, so California remains the lead state that is shaping the US data privacy landscape.  Is your company ready for the CCPA and other local privacy laws on or by the effective dates (Nevada - October 1, 2019 and CCPA - January 1, 2020)? 

This webinar will explore the current state of data privacy in the US; what companies should be looking for in applicability and scope of local data privacy legislation as well as how to measure and contain the operational impact of these new laws; and best practices for compliance in 2020.
