Security Congress Abstract
Personal data is a critical asset for many companies, and governments are requiring greater accountability for how they use it. California is currently at the forefront of state data privacy law efforts. The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) takes effect on January 1, 2020. The CCPA is often described as being modeled after the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR) and shares many similarities with its EU counterpart. However, there are a number of differences between the two regulations, and organizations need to assess whether additional processes should be added to their current compliance programs. This presentation will provide an overview of the differences between the CCPA and GDPR; note privacy regulation developments from other jurisdiction;, and provide practical tips for compliance.
