The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) was signed into law this summer, as described in our prior post and this LawFlash. The CCPA creates a variety of new consumer privacy rights and will require many companies to reassess and modify their business processes in the collection and use of personal information. This comprehensive new privacy law, similar in some ways to the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), will therefore require many organizations doing business in California to implement new policies and procedures to be in compliance by the January 1, 2020, deadline.

The landmark CCPA is also a work in progress. To help guide companies and institutions through the challenges presented by the CCPA, Morgan Lewis has set up a CCPA resource center that will be continuously updated with content as new developments arise.

One such development is a recent set of amendments passed by the California Legislature. To help explain the current state of the CCPA, the recent amendments, and issues that remain to be debated and clarified, our colleagues Reece Hirsch, Mark Krotoski, and Carla Oakley will be hosting a webinar on October 16 at 1:00–2:00 pm ET.

We hope you register for this webinar and visit the CCPA resource center to stay up to date on important developments in this new regulatory environment.
