Issues in Compliance: GDPR & California Consumer Privacy Act

The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation has been in effect for nearly a year, and California’s expansive Consumer Privacy Act is set to go into effect in 2020. This panel of regulators, in-house and outside counsel will review enforcement trends that have the greatest impact on online platforms, and actions that platforms have taken to comply and to reduce their risk. The panel will also address the new requirements of the California CPA and the potential impact of the law on advertising supported business models. In addition, this session will discuss the policy implications of new legislation being proposed in Congress to federally regulate digital privacy in the U.S. The panel discussion will include:

• A review of the enforcement actions during the first year of GDPR, and what they reveal about the challenges of obtaining consent under GDPR

• Challenges of responding to Data Subject Access Requests, Correction and Deletion requests and how organizations have responded

• The impact of Brexit on GDPR compliance plans

• The differences and similarities of CCPA and GDPR; and

• Handicapping the (many) pending amendments to the CCPA
