Weekly California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) Webinars
Clarip is currently conducting weekly webinars on the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) to help businesses become familiar with the requirements of CA’s new privacy law and to introduce potential customers to the benefits of using the Clarip privacy software as part of compliance efforts.
Please call 1-888-252-5653 to RSVP for a California Consumer Privacy Act webinar.
The California Consumer Privacy Act has already been a substantial area of interest among both our current clients and potential clients. The International Association of Privacy Professionals estimates that more than half a million US companies will need to comply with the new law.
Each CA Consumer Privacy Act webinar will be designed to be valuable to CPOs, DPOs, CISOs, CIOs, General Counsel as well as other compliance/legal/marketing/technology professionals that need to be familiar with the details of the new law. If there is a particular topic that would be of interest to you, please feel free to reach out to us and make suggestions.
About the California Privacy Law
California adopted the CaCPA, or CCPA as some people are calling it, at the end of June 2018 after an agreement was reached between California politicians, business, and the proponents of a proposed ballot initiative to create a November vote on a proposed privacy law. the compromise legislation eliminated the ballot initiative and led to the passage of AB-375.
The law will go into effect between January 1, 2020 and July 1, 2020. Companies have approximately 18 months to prepare for the right to access, the right to delete, the right to opt out, the right to opt in, and other measures created by the law. There is plenty of time to get ready, but not too much time to waste.
People are already referring to the new law as GDPR-lite. Please do not let that moniker fool you however. Businesses need to start preparing for the implementation of this law sooner rather than later. There was a significant amount of procrastination around the GDPR among some American businesses and this led to a last minute scramble around the deadline to move towards compliance. Given the significant potential statutory damages from the California law’s private cause of action, businesses should begin planning now to ensure they are ready for this law well in advance.
Changes to the Law
The California legislature has already amended the law produced by AB-375 once at the end of August with SB-1121. There are additional media reports about business lobbying the legislature for even more changes. The legislature has indicated that it will consider these changes as part of its 2019 legislative calendar. As changes are made, we will reevaluate and update the proposed webinar topics to address these areas.
The CA Attorney General has also been authorized to issue regulations to promote the purpose of the law. There will no doubt be substantial public discussion about those regulations. We will be closely monitoring the proposals and will bring you information about them as soon as we have them.
