18 October 2019 / 17:30 - 18:30 CEST (11:30 - 12:30 NY time)

Please note that although this webinar has already taken place, you can still purchase it on-demand. For this purpose, please email plus@esomar.org and one of our Data Protection Officers will process your request and provide you with the on-demand file.

With 3 months to go before the entry into force of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and considering the key amendments just made to the text of the law, we will update you with what you need to know and equip you with the tools you need to avoid 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.
