A Practical Approach to Sector Compliance with the California Consumer Privacy Act

Please note that due to unforseen circumstances this webinar will be postponed. Once you register you will be notified of the exact date the webinar will take place.

19 July 2019 18:00 CEST (What time is this for me?)

With less than 6 months to go before the entry into force of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), we will equip you with the tools you need to avoid any surprises in January.


Why should you care?

The CCPA aims to give California residents greater control over how organisations collect, use and disclose personal data. Although there are similarities with the EU General Data Protection Regulation, the CCPA also introduces additional rights for consumers such as the right to opt out from allowing a business to sell their personal data.


Fines for non-compliance with the CCPA can amount to $7,500 fine per violation, and with the law being just around the corner, now is the time to ensure your company's compliance.


What will you take away from the session?
  • Practical advice on what you can already do straight after the session;
  • Receive answers to your questions by our internationally renowned speakers;
  • Templates to support you to strengthen your compliance documentation;
  • 1-week access pass to our Data Protection Officer queries desk, to support you with any further queries;


Who is this webinar for?

This webinar will be useful for any business currently operating in the US or planning to do so in the future. It is also intended for any professionals wanting to impart more knowledge on the CCPA within their business, clients, or to their colleagues.
