Message from the Chair

By the time this newsletter hits your electronic desk, you should have received an announcement that registration is open for the 2020 Cyberspace Law Institute and Winter Working Meeting. Please join us for this signature event on January 24-25 in at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University in Phoenix. It’s a wonderful opportunity to get very relevant CLE (see more below) and to get more involved with the committee. We alternate plenary CLE sessions with breakout meetings, where subcommittees work on existing projects, discuss hot issues, and identify new initiatives.

CCPA Looms as Compliance Concerns Come into Focus

The much-anticipated effective date of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is now only weeks away. On January 1, subject businesses are required to implement strict new data privacy policies. The CCPA was drafted and passed quickly, which some critics argue led to unnecessary ambiguities in its language. Large technology companies lobbied intensely to soften the law’s requirements. Now after months of debate, conjecture, and wrangling, the most comprehensive data privacy law in the United States is set to take effect.
