Topic: Data Privacy on Steroids: Sweeping New Data Privacy/Security Regulation in the EU and California, and What it Means for American Business

Cambridge Analytica and other recent data privacy scandals have greatly heightened public concern about potentially inappropriate use of sensitive personal data. At the same time, the European Union has completely revised its already demanding data privacy and security legislation to include new individual rights and the imposition of unprecedented obligations upon entities doing business in the EU. Now California has advanced U.S. law in the European direction with data subject rights of access, rights to block disclosure of personal data and rights to demand erasure of such data, as well as unprecedented private rights of action for data breaches. Our distinguished speakers will explore the implications of these developments for American business and offer a guide to helping organizations cope with these unprecedented changes.
