The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) goes into effect on January 1, 2020. It is important to understand how your business might be affected, including as a result of recent developments that have provided additional requirements and clarifications for CCPA-compliance efforts. On October 10, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra released a draft of the long-awaited CCPA regulations, and the very next day Governor Gavin Newsom signed seven CCPA amendments into law. Although the draft regulations are subject to upcoming public comment and further revisions, the proposed regulations and amendments provide a near-final view of what the CCPA will ultimately require of businesses when it goes into effect on January 1, 2020, and when it is enforced by the Attorney General’s office starting July 1, 2020.
In this recorded webinar, Coblentz Cybersecurity & Data Privacy partner Scott Hall takes a look at the CCPA, further obligations and clarifications that have come from the Attorney General regulations, recent amendments, and what companies that currently, or plan to, do business in California need to do to prepare as the law takes effect.
