The novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”) has resulted in the California legislature rolling out several emergency initiatives to address the impact of the outbreak. Initiatives range from introducing measures to address key employment issues to financial packages that provide funding to increase hospital capacity and protect those most vulnerable to the disease. Given the immediate impact these initiatives will have on Californians today, the focus on these types of measures is understandable. Even businesses operating in today’s environment have been forced to shift their focus to address the impact COVID-19 has had on their employees’ and customers’ health and safety.
The sudden shift in focus has resulted in many businesses wondering about the status of the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). The CCPA, which took effect on January 1, 2020 and is being enforced as of July 1st by the California Attorney General (“AG”), was the hot topic of conversation before COVID-19. While COVID-19 has impacted governments, businesses, and even many federal and state statutes and regulations, the CCPA appears to be immune. Join us for this complimentary webinar during which members of Troutman Pepper’s Cybersecurity, Information Governance, and Privacy group will:
- Provide an overview and update on the status of the CCPA;
- Discuss compliance challenges in light of COVID-19;
- Share practical compliance tips; and
- Participate in a Q&A Session
