On June 28, 2018, Governor Brown signed Assembly Bill 375, now known as the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA), which grants consumers new rights with respect to the collection and use of their personal information. The CCPA goes into effect January 1, 2020, and with it comes new requirements, challenges and opportunities.
Join us for our first-ever prīvaC summit, where we’ll discuss everything from risk management practices to the implementation of privacy regulations. This is a far-reaching, new law that potentially impacts all businesses in CA, including your own and those of your clients.
