Over the years, a myriad of new legislation has been introduced to strengthen privacy rights. The California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA), which will take effect on January 1, 2023, is set to amend the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and impose stricter data protection requirements for both consumer and human resources data. Thus, these new developments may impose drastic modifications to business practices and privacy policies.

With the impending shift in the regulatory paradigm, businesses must keep themselves in the loop of any developments. To comply with these amendments, they must also develop a robust compliance program aligned with the new privacy laws.

In this LIVE Webcast, recognized data privacy professionals Andrea Gumushian (Varnum LLP) and Kenneth K. Dort (Faegre Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP) will dissect the critical aspects of the CPRA. Speakers will dig deep to discuss how these provisions will affect businesses and share the best compliance strategies to prepare for what’s ahead in this area of law.

Key Issues:

  • What’s in the CPRA?
  • Significant Impacts on Business Practices
  • Critical Issues and Potential Drawbacks
  • Essential Considerations in Developing a Compliance Program
  • What’s Ahead?
