The week after Thanksgiving is always a busy one and this year does not disappoint. We are pleased to be holding the following educational opportunities this week:

California Consumer Privacy Act Workshop Los Angeles Edition
In Los Angeles, on Wednesday, December 4, we will be holding the latest in our series of California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) Workshops. This edition will come a day after the California Attorney General’s public hearing on the draft regulations, which we will recap. Like the others, this will be an interactive discussion on CCPA interpretation questions and compliance strategies, will include a deep dive into understanding and applying core CCPA provisions; industry benchmarking; preventing unintended “sales” of data; updating applicable privacy policy provisions and other disclosures; and considerations for business partner and vendor management. A reception to support networking with your privacy peers will follow the program. To find out more about this this invitation only in-person workshop, please contact workshop@kelleydrye.com.
