CCPA Myths and Misunderstandings: Tackling the 10 Most Challenging Provisions, July 31, 2019

The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) is arguably the most expansive privacy law in U.S. history and will become enforceable in just a matter of months. Is your company prepared to comply with this sweeping new legislation?

Join our highly experienced privacy lawyers Christine Lyon, Kristen Mathews, and Mary Race for a myth-busting webinar that will examine the impact of the CCPA, answer your burning questions, uncover the CCPA’s nuances, and address its ambiguities and challenges. We will also include strategies for creating compliance programs in the midst of the unknowns, and a strategic action plan for businesses to become compliant.

Topics we plan to address include:

  • Whether or how you’ll need to modify your service provider agreements
  • What counts as a “sale” of personal information under the CCPA
  • How the CCPA will affect loyalty programs and similar incentives

Unpacking the California Consumer Privacy Act, July 31, 2018

The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 is arguably the most expansive piece of privacy legislation in U.S. history. It requires covered businesses to disclose the categories of personal information (PI) they collect, sell, or share about California consumers, and gives those consumers a right to opt out of the sale of their PI, a right to the deletion of their PI, and the right to receive a copy of the “specific pieces” of PI, among other obligations.

The Act stands to impact many companies doing business in California that handle PI relating to Californians, regardless of the location of their headquarters or physical operations. In addition, the speed with which the Act was signed into law—there was just a week between introduction and passage—has resulted in inconsistencies and ambiguities that will need to be addressed through amendments and/or regulations.

Join Morrison & Foerster partners Purvi G. Patel and Nathan D. Taylor for an in-depth look at the Act and practical steps businesses can take now. In this first webinar in our series, Purvi and Nathan will highlight challenges the Act presents, including:

  • Key provisions and new compliance obligations that it imposes;
  • Drafting errors and ambiguities stemming from its swift passage; and
  • Advocacy efforts that companies can undertake before it takes effect on January 1, 2020.

Privacy Across the Atlantic: Comparing EU GDPR and California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, September 20, 2018

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:

  • Scope
  • Notice requirements
  • Individual rights, including access and portability, deletion, and opt-outs
  • Enforcement and fines
