The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a sweeping new law that introduces a host of privacy rights for California consumers, as well as creates a series of robust obligations for certain businesses that collect personal information about those consumers.

Join us for CCPA Week: A series of webinars hosted by Perkins Coie’s Privacy & Data Security practice focused on getting your business ready to comply with this enigmatic statutory scheme. Attendees will receive an overview of the current state of legislative amendments, insight into the high burden of persuasion industries may face, and guidance on leveraging existing compliance and governance programs to build a global privacy program that incorporates responsible data usage and proactive privacy practices.
