CalCPA to Hold 2020 Privacy Summit

Live Webcast July 17, 2020. on New California Privacy Law and Cybersecurity

Then-Gov. Jerry Brown signed Assembly Bill 375 June 28, 2018—now known as the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA), which grants consumers new rights with respect to the collection and use of their personal information. The CCPA went into effect Jan. 1, 2020, and with that came new requirements, challenges and opportunities. 

Final regulations are expected on July 1, 2020, with a CCPA 2.0 initiative headed to the November 2020 ballot. Join us for prīvaC Summit 2.0, where we’ll discuss everything from risk management practices to the implementation of privacy regulations. This is a far-reaching, new law that potentially impacts all businesses in California and other states—including your own and those of your clients.

Objectives of the Summit:
  • Identify pertinent issues from recent privacy legislation both in California and in Europe.
  • Identify how to prepare your client and yourself for this new privacy era.
