About the Program

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) of 2018 is the strictest privacy law in the United States and has national impact for anyone doing business in California. The new law takes effect January 1, 2020, and gives consumers greater control over their personal information, including the right to:

  • Be informed which categories of their data will be collected by a business before it is collected;
  • Opt out of the sale of their personal information;
  • Delete their data from a business’ database;
  • Be informed of any changes to categories of their data a business collects;Know the categories of the third parties with whom their data is being shared;
  • Know the categories of sources of information from whom their data is acquired;
  • Know the business purpose for collecting their data;
  • Be aware of all their data a business has collected (annually and free of charge at the consumer’s request).

Enforcement of the CCPA will be through consumer lawsuits for data breaches, along with enforcement action by the California attorney general, who can impose fines of up to $2,500 per violation or $7,500 per intentional violation of the CCPA.

The privacy landscape has changed dramatically over the last year, and several other states are drafting similar privacy laws to offer similar rights. Are you ready?

Led by an interdisciplinary team of Duane Morris attorneys, the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 Webinar Series offers an in-depth discussion and analysis of the CCPA, along with timely and practical strategies to prepare your business for compliance with this complex rule.

In our first session, we will discuss:

  • Understanding the CCPA
  • How this law affects your business
  • What steps can a business take to ensure compliance?


Also join us on June 20, 2019, from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Pacific time for the next installment of our webinar series, "Preparing for the CCPA: Reviewing and Updating Privacy Policies and Agreements for Compliance."
