Just over a month after the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) took effect, California passed its own sweeping privacy legislation, the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“the Act”).

The Act stands to affect countless global companies doing business in California, many of which recently devoted extensive time and resources to GDPR compliance. These companies must now determine what additional steps are necessary to comply with the Act by the time it takes effect on January 1, 2020.

On Thursday, September 20, 2018, join Morrison & Foerster partners Christine Lyon and Julie O’Neill for a deep dive into the key similarities and differences between the GDPR and the Act, as well as practical steps companies can take to assess gaps and chart a path to compliance. The areas they expect to cover include:

  • Notice requirements
  • Access and portability
  • Deletion
  • Opt-outs
  • Discrimination
