About the Webinar

In May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect in the European Union in an effort to protect consumer data. The same year, Google was fined a $57 million for violations of the GDPR. Needless to say, privacy laws are no joke! As of January 1, 2020, California leads the privacy path in the United States by its establishment of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). Similar to the GDPR, the CCPA aims to protect consumer data by creating the consumer right to transparency. Understanding the CCPA is particularly vital to businesses that collect any consumer information. This webinar will explain what the CCPA is, who it applies to (spoiler alert: YOU), and what steps can be taken to ensure compliance.
