This webinar is presented by the BLS Internet and Privacy Law Committee and the Consumer Financial Services Committee.
The program will focus on three key areas: (1) the fundamental basis of the statute, how it is structured, and additional rights that it creates for consumers; (2) who is covered by the statute, including who qualifies for protection, what businesses the act applies to and how it will affect them, and organizations that are exempt; and (3) enforcement mechanisms under the statute, including what penalties and private rights of action are available, and how the potential claims/liabilities may generate class action litigation for certain data breaches that result from violations of a business’s duty to implement and maintain reasonable security practices and procedures appropriate to the risk arising from existing California law.
Moderator: Thomas Hassing. Speakers: Abbas Kazerounian and Genevieve Walser-Jolly.
