The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) takes effect on January 01, 2020. CCPA is intended to enhance privacy rights and consumer protection for residents of California. Speculation is that this might be adopted by other states or even the federal government, giving the US something similar to the EU's data privacy protection laws.
So, what do we need to know about CCPA? Luckily, Chip Cooper, cofounder and CEO of FTC Guardian, will be presenting a free webinar on the topic on Tuesday, December 10, 2019 7:00 PM ET. (This is an FTC Hangout presentation, usually only available to paid customers, so this is a generous offering on Chip's part.)
Chip will address recommended strategies for CCPA compliance:
- What constitutes “selling” personal information (PI) of California residents?
- Are there restrictions on “using” PI?
- What are the requirements for California residents to opt-out of the sale of PI?
- What are the 4 recommended steps for compliance with CCPA?
