Topic: California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)
The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 is the most comprehensive law of its kind ever enacted in the United States, setting forth rules for companies that buy, collect, transfer or sell consumers’ personal information. Because of the size and reach of the California economy – the 6th largest in the world – and the number of companies that may need to comply – estimated at about 500,000 worldwide – the CCPA is effectively a national, if not international, law. This program will address the salient features of the CCPA, who must comply, the new rights consumers have under the CCPA, legal exposures for violations, likely impacts of the law, and what companies should do to comply with the law.
