California’s New Consumer Privacy Act and Its National Effect


The California Legislature passed a comprehensive privacy measure known as the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018. This act establishes rights for consumers relative to knowing the personal information a business collects on them, grants a right to delete their personal information, dictates whether a business can sell their personal information, and prohibits discrimination in the offering and pricing of services based on the consumer’s exercising their rights. In this session, the act will be discussed, including its effect on the banking industry nationwide. Join us for this important webinar and learn about the requirements of the act and areas in which banks will need to comply.
