On January 1st, 2020 the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) will come in to effect. Taking the lead from the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation, the new CCPA is being seen as the template for state data privacy regulations moving forward. The CCPA will require that companies provide California consumers with the abilityto submit Data Subject Access Requests (DSARs), and companies will need to follow strict guidelines to process and respond to these requests. Join Women in eDiscovery Los Angeles as Sarah Sims-Thompson, Chief Product Officer for SiemlyGlobal, LLC, conducts a high-level overview of the regulation: who must comply and who is exempt, what rights the consumers will have, what companies' DSAR obligations are, the penalties companies may face, and how companies can reduce the burden of the CCPA with technology.
Wie-LA thanks Ogletree for hosting our October meeting, and SiemlyGlobal for also sponsoring our lunch.
