Intended to enhance consumer privacy rights and data use transparency, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) of 2018 is regarded as the most comprehensive privacy law in the U.S. The Act, which went into effect on January 1, 2020, imposes stringent privacy requirements with significant impacts on many entities that do business with California residents.

However, with implementing regulations still not finalized, and installation of compliant systems still on-going for many regulated businesses, the best practices for compliance with the CCPA remain uncertain. Thus, businesses must continue to keep themselves abreast of the continuing developments in this area of law. Diligent reassessment and revision of their current data privacy programs is also a key to avoid non-compliance.

Listen as a panel of key thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group provide the audience with a comprehensive discussion of CCPA. Speakers will present emerging trends, developments, and issues surrounding this topic and offer practical tips and strategies in implementing robust compliance programs.

This LIVE Webcast will discuss the following:

  • The Fundamentals of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)
  • Hot Issues and Challenges
  • Practical Compliance Tips and Strategies
  • What Lies Ahead

  • A summary of the basics of CCPA (Right to Know, Right to Delete, Right to Opt Out of Sale, Right to Non-Discrimination, Notice Requirements, Privacy Policy, Training Requirements), or
  • Steps that Businesses should take to start preparation for CCPA (Determine status of your entity, Review and revise vendor contracts, revise privacy policy, set up processes for receiving and processing consumer requests, and implement employee training).

  • The CCPA gives California residents significant new privacy rights, subject to some exceptions.   Those rights include the right to receive a notice of collection, the right to know the categories and specific pieces of personal information collected by the business, the right to delete the personal information collected and the right to opt-out of sale of one’s personal information by the business.
  • While the law itself provides some detail on the privacy rights businesses must afford consumers under the CCPA, the proposed regulations from the CA Attorney General provide an extraordinary number of granular rules on how these rights must be disclosed and operationalized by businesses – including what needs to be in various notices, how to enable consumers to exercise their rights, how to verify consumers and how to respond.  Many of these rules must be captured in the business’ online privacy policy.  CCPA functionality will require significant investments in training and in process flows, IT, record keeping and controls.
  • The proposed regulations acknowledge that when it comes to consumer access and deletion requests, there is an inherent tension between privacy and cybersecurity.   Certain data points can never be provided to a requestor.   A business must consider the right of harm to the consumer posed by any unauthorized access or deletion.
  • The proposed regulations make clear that the CCPA applies to a business that does not collect information directly from consumers, if the business sells a consumer’s personal information.   This provision is particularly significant for consumer data resellers and advertising networks.
  • Third party cookies present unique issues under the CCPA, particularly if the third party does not qualify as a “service provider” under the law.

  • The parameters of the CCPA mandates on security systems, and how those track onto current US breach notification parameters (those that mandate the implementation of security programs) and those mandated by the GDPR.
  • The enforcement parameters of the CCPA – what are the levels of exposure going forward and what are the risks as to the new private rights of action in the breach sector.
  • The parameters of the new non-discrimination right – specifically, the issues of “reasonable value” and justifiable differences in service levels (all in the face of the issue of “financial incentives”).
  • The interaction of the “alternative format” requirements in light of ongoing ADA compliance trends.
