New Privacy Laws: What Tech Companies Must Know - California, New York & International Privacy Law Update


The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is scheduled to become effective on January 1, 2020, bringing unprecedented change to the U.S. data protection law landscape. Businesses that are not fully prepared to comply with the sweeping restrictions on the handling of consumers' personal information face severe financial penalties. The CCPA is the first of what is likely to be a coming wave of consumer data privacy regulations at the state and federal level.

Topics addressed within this presentation: 

  • How will the California Privacy Act (CCPA) impact my tech company?
  • Does Georgia have laws addressing the collection and processing of consumer personal information? Are Georgia laws likely to be amended?
  • How will the GDPR and other international privacy laws impact my business?
  • What other states have privacy laws and how will recent amendments to those laws affect my B2B tech business?
  • What compliance steps and programs should my tech company implement?
  • What penalties are imposed on non-compliant companies?
