The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“the Act”) was signed into law on June 28, 2018 and formerly goes into effect beginning January 1, 2020. How is the ACT the same and how is it different than GDPR? What does the ACT entail and will there be a boom of litigation? How can organizations protect themselves? These and other questions will be answered in this dynamic presentation.
About Our Speaker

She has significant experience managing the response and investigation into sophisticated cybersecurity attacks impacting systems and information, including those attributable to nation-states, insider thefts of intellectual property, and data breaches of all sizes and significance.
