On October 4, 2019, the IPLC hosted a telephonic “fireside chat” with Mary Stone Ross, a privacy activist and co-author of the California Consumer Privacy Act and a national expert on the CCPA. The CCPA, which goes into effect on January 1, 2020, will have a profound impact on the rights of Californians to data privacy and on business who collect, use, and sell their data. She reminded the participants that the intent of the CCPA was to give all Californians meaningful transparency into what personal information business are collecting about them and their devices and to make sure the law could be enforced.
