The California Consumer Privacy Act: A Conversation with California Senator Bob Hertzberg

Date: Monday, February 25, 2019 5:30 PM - 7:45 PM

Venue: Please note new location: Omni Hotel, San Francisco, CA

The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) is grabbing national attention as the first comprehensive data privacy measure in the U.S. Under the CCPA, businesses that collect the personal information of California residents will be required to provide Californians a range of new rights, including rights to access and delete data and opt out of the sale of their personal information. And private litigants will be able to sue for damages in response to certain types of data breaches. Enforcement begins in 2020.

As a principal co-sponsor of the bill, Senator Bob Hertzberg, who recently took the reins as Senate Majority Leader, was a powerful voice throughout the legislative process. In this interactive briefing, you’ll have an opportunity to hear first-hand how the CCPA went from ballot initiative to law in record time, and learn where the law might be headed with anticipated additional amendments in 2019.

Who should attend: General counsels, public policy teams, and others responsible for data privacy or compliance at businesses providing goods and services to residents of California.

California Senator Bob Hertzberg (D-Los Angeles) is one of only six lawmakers in California history to serve as Assembly Speaker and subsequently win a seat in the Senate. His two stints in the Legislature were separated by a dozen years of public policy activism as a private citizen, lawyer and businessman. Now representing nearly 1 million residents of the San Fernando Valley in Senate District 18, Senator Hertzberg remains committed to looking at the big challenges facing California.
