Event will take place in Charney Hall, rooms 102 and 103.

The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 grants California residents the right to access their personal information; know which categories of personal information about them are being collected and shared; request deletion of personal information; and opt-out of data “sells”. The Act also protects residents against discrimination by a business for exercising their rights. Entities subject to the Act will have to revamp their privacy policies, revise their contracts with service providers, and make changes to their data handling practices to ensure compliance.

Come join us for this timely and important discussion on California privacy, and the potential impact this new law may have on your business.
