GDPR one year later

The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation took effect May 25, 2018. Many companies continued to work through that deadline and beyond to bring their data management practices into compliance. This panel will explore what we’ve learned from working with organizations subject to GDPR: what have been the biggest compliancechallenges, what have regulators emphasized in enforcement, what issues does Brexit raise, and what is on the horizon for organizations who are subject to the law as data controllers or processors.

Understanding and Complying with California Consumer Privacy Act

This session will cover the law’s scope and application and provide practical advice on how to comply with consumer’s new rights to enhanced disclosures on privacy practices, data access, deletion and portability. For organizations new to data protection, it will de-mystify the CCPA’s prohibitions on the sale of data to third parties, private rights of action, and anti-discrimination rules. For those that already comply with GDPR, learn what more you need to do to meet the CCPA.
