The webinar will discuss each law’s requirements for businesses, highlight their differences, and note other laws such as the California Student Online Personal Information Protection Act (SOPIPA) that may affect businesses operating in these spaces. It will conclude with an “issue spotting” exercise to demonstrate issues in complying with each law.
