Panel: Today’s Business & Consumer Privacy Landscape
GDPR, CCPA and Privacy
WHEN: Wednesday Feb, 20 2019
TIME: 5:30-8:30 pm
WHERE: Seattle Yacht Club

Today’s business and consumer privacy laws are changing at a dramatic rate. The introduction of EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in 2018 and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) in 2020 are two examples highlighting how governments are responding to consumer privacy. These directly affect and have far reaching implications for businesses as they work to understand, educate employees and implement the laws. Ignoring these can have major financial and brand repercussions.
- January 2019 - Google was fined ~$50M for breach in GDPR
- May 2018 - Google and Facebook had GDPR complaints filed against them
- 2018 - Google and Facebook sued over biometric privacy concerns in Illinois
Are governments overreacting? Are these distractions from higher priority projects? Do you really know how companies use your data?
Join our panel discussion on February 20th which includes author and CEO Kip Boyle, Director Legal and practitioner Sam Shaddox, Practice Leader and previous Assistant AG Jake Bernstein and CISO and moderator Paul Farrall.
