Toward a National Standard: How the CCPA’s Impact Extends Beyond California

Much has been written about California’s new, robust privacy legislation, which is slated to begin implementation in 2020. But as companies prepare to comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), they should also consider how this significant legislation has moved the needle on the national privacy conversation.

A number of states have expanded their privacy and security protections over the past 12 months, and more are scheduled to do so before the end of the year—to say nothing of the growing prospects for federal privacy legislation. While the CCPA introduced a first-of-its-kind private right of action for data breaches, even companies without a significant presence in California should pay attention to how this new de facto yardstick might impact the national landscape and come to terms with complying with a patchwork of legislation.

In a new webinar, Manatt’s privacy and data security group provides a timely update on the CCPA and its impact across the country.

During this 60-minute webinar, the presenters will:

  • Discuss recent and expected changes to the CCPA, including an update on the dialogue at the California attorney general’s recently concluded public forums.
  • Describe how the CCPA might be impacting privacy legislation across the country, including a review of privacy developments on Capitol Hill and in Colorado, Illinois, Massachusetts, New York and Ohio.
  • Outline the significance of understanding the compliance components of the CCPA regardless of whether your company has a presence within the state.
  • Provide key considerations for companies as they navigate a patchwork of privacy legislation across the country.
