Seeing Around the Corner on Privacy: Perspectives on California’s CCPA, Copycat State Laws, and Potential Federal Privacy Legislation


In response to the increasing sensitivity around consumer privacy, the California legislature moved swiftly to pass a sweeping new law that enhances the privacy rights afforded to California residents and creates significant operational impact for the expansive types of entities to which the law applies. The California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA), which goes beyond the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation in certain respects, is scheduled to go into effect on January 1, 2020, but regulated entities should start assessing the scope of CCPA’s impact and taking steps to proactively bring themselves into compliance.

Join McDermott’s panel of privacy and cybersecurity lawyers as we discuss how we got here, what businesses should be doing now to prepare for the CCPA and what the regulatory landscape will look like in the next few years. Our agenda includes insightful analysis of the following topics:

  • Historical overview of the CCPA
  • Key areas of CCPA compliance
  • Expected issues and ongoing rulemaking
  • Practical insights on how to bring existing privacy programs into compliance with the CCPA
  • Other state legislation we are tracking throughout the US
  • Potential federal privacy legislation and state preemption issues
