Session I - The Evolving California Consumer Privacy Landscape

The California privacy landscape has undergone significant changes recently, with the enactment of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and a ballot initiative which, if approved in November 2020, would further alter consumer rights. Panelists will share insights on how consumers have been exercising their new privacy rights, how businesses have been working to comply, how enforcement developments have been shaping up since the CCPA became operative on January 1, 2020, and how the new initiative, if it passes, changes things.

Session II - How the CCPA Relates to Other Existing Laws

This panel will explore how the CCPA interacts with other laws, such as trade secret protections, HIPAA and other special purpose data. The panel will also feature perspectives on the CCPA in consumer privacy litigation, where the contours of its private right of action; its potential to support common law and derivative claims; and it’s safe harbor protections are being tested.

  • CCPA and Other laws (e.g., trade secret protections, HIPAA, special purpose data)
  • CCPA consumer privacy actions: Is the CCPA support or a safe harbor for derivative/common law theories
