Event summary

The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CaCPA) has been characterized as the first “GDPR-like” privacy statute to be enacted in the United States, and includes sweeping changes that will impact businesses in California and globally. The CaCPA gives California residents new rights to help them understand and limit how businesses use and share their personal information, provides for civil penalties for non-compliance and creates a private right of action with statutory penalties for security breaches. Please join lawyers from Cooley’s cyber/data/privacy practice as they discuss the CaCPA and how organizations can best prepare to comply. 

The program will address: 

• CaCPA’s core requirements, potential penalties and the private right of action for security breaches 
• Business and operational impacts of Californians’ rights to access, delete and opt out of the sharing of personal information 
• Scoping compliance efforts, implementation challenges and going-forward action items 
• How GDPR compliance can and cannot be leveraged for CaCPA 
• Latest developments on the efforts to amend CaCPA
