California’s New Consumer Privacy Act and its National Impact
In this session, the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 will be discussed in detail. This comprehensive measure establishes rights for consumers relative to knowing the personal information that 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. We will also discuss the potential new and significant legal liability stemming from a private right of action when an entity suffers from a data breach. Learn more about the scope of this new law and efforts that will be made to revise the law next year given the Act’s delayed operative date of January 1, 2020.
