PART ONE: Navigating Anticipated CCPA Enforcement & Mitigating Litigation

PART ONE OF THE TWO-PART VIRTUAL SERIES
Exclusive to ACC Members and California Licensed Attorneys Only

CCPA ENFORCEMENT AND LITIGATION HAS ARRIVED:

What have we learned seven months into the most comprehensive change to privacy law in the United States and what can we anticipate?
With the California Attorney General committed to enforcing the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) on July 1, 2020, and CCPA 2.0 possibly on the November ballot, the landscape of privacy law in California is changing quickly. Every company should familiarize themselves with general privacy principles and laws. Our two–part series will get you up to speed on all the latest developments, including the hot button issues of enforcement and litigation in data privacy and cybersecurity, and provide you with regulatory updates on what’s around the corner. We will discuss:

  • What to expect with the AG’s enforcement actions; who’s being targeted, what are they looking for, what are the penalties?
  • An overview of pending CCPA litigation; current claims and what can we learn from the cases?
  • Actionable takeaways on how to best position your company to avoid litigation and regulatory actions based on lessons learned thus far;
  • What we can anticipate with CCPA 2.0?

Join Procopio’s Data Privacy and Cybersecurity team and leading ACC in-house counsel to learn their best practices in your approach to data privacy litigation and compliance and ways to protect your company.

*This event is pending MCLE approval for 1 hour general California credit.

PART ONE: Navigating Anticipated CCPA Enforcement & Mitigating Litigation

The California Attorney General is concerned that the pandemic creates a consumer privacy environment that is ripe for data breaches, and it may be difficult to use COVID-19 as an excuse for non-compliance. How companies implement data privacy programs and security plans including incident response plans for data breaches, hold an important key to whether they will be able to effectively defend privacy litigation and class action lawsuits. There have already been numerous lawsuits testing the waters under the new CCPA and more companies will inevitably face significant lawsuit risks and crippling data breaches in the near future. Understanding the risks and tactics by regulators and plaintiff’s attorneys alike will help companies navigate these risks and minimize the exposure.

Join us to discuss:

  • Emerging patterns in CCPA and other data privacy litigation
  • Whether a company can “cure” and avoid a lawsuit
  • Steps to take now to reduce litigation risks
  • What will the AG’s enforcement of the CCPA look like and what can we learn from the first two years of enforcement of the GDPR?

Join Procopio Senior Counsel Elaine Harwell and Partner Mindy Morton, along with Senior Corporate Counsel Rebecca Hanovice of Callaway Golf Company, for guidance on how to navigate the data protection laws and regulations as well as addressing compliance in advance, and guidance on ensuing litigation issues.
