The CPRA expanded consumer rights and created new privacy compliance requirements that businesses must put in place. CPRA enforcement begins on July 1, 2023.

    Join privacy attorney Scott Hall and members of the Coblentz Data Privacy Team on Tuesday, June 6, 2023 for a discussion on steps your business can take now to prepare for CPRA enforcement.

    • Learn practical steps to take now to ensure your business is in compliance with CPRA;
    • Hear about the state laws going into effect across the country;
    • Understand the impact of potential data breaches and the trends in privacy litigation and enforcement.

    Businesses who have $25M in annual global revenue; OR process personal information of 100,000 California residents; OR derive 50% or more of profits from selling or sharing personal information are subject to the CPRA.

    There is still time to comply, but businesses should act now to update privacy policies and practices.
