A host of new laws are changing the way businesses handle consumer information, and creating significant compliance challenges in the process. One of the most significant of those laws is the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)—significant because of the breadth of data it applies to, the expansive obligations it creates, and the many ambiguities that surround the law’s meaning, application, and enforcement.
The CCPA, which applies to almost any company with a connection to California, creates significant new consumer rights, including the right for individuals to access personal data that organizations collect about them. In requiring organizations to hand over consumer data to the consumer, the CCPA creates discovery-like obligations with regard to collecting, reviewing, and producing data—and hefty fines for noncompliance.
Webinar: Preparing for the California Consumer Protection Act
Yesterday, Logikcull hosted a webinar on the CCPA, what it is, what it requires, and what impacted organizations might do to build out their compliance approach. Given the number of people who attended—well over 500 legal professionals viewed the program as it aired—it’s safe to say that there is plenty of interest in, and perhaps some fear around, the CCPA.

Indeed, according to a poll conducted during the presentation, legal professionals hold wide-ranging concerns about the upcoming law.
Thankfully, our impressive panel, featuring Eric Goldman of the Santa Clara University School of Law, Emily Yu from Roblox, and Christian Auty from Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner, were able to walk us through the law’s main requirements, it’s similarities and differences with existing privacy regimes like the GDPR, and compliance strategies.
