July was a big month in California privacy thanks to the Office of the Attorney General’s publication of new information about its CCPA enforcement efforts, its support for an evolving global privacy control standard, and the introduction of a consumer tool to flag possible CCPA violations. We summarize these developments for you. We also highlight another case that rejects attempts to maintain the privileged status of forensic reports created in the wake of cybersecurity attacks.
The Privacy Law Section is also busy developing robust programming for the fall.
