Rights and Obligations under California's New Privacy Laws
California has several new privacy and data security laws, with new consumer rights, new obligations on corporations, and a new private right of action. Panelists will share insights on how the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) will be interpreted, administered and enforced when it becomes operative on January 1, 2020, how it compares to current privacy laws, how it could be totally revamped next year through a new ballot initiative, and how businesses with California customers and users are preparing to comply.

California Consumer Privacy Act and the Internet of Things
This session will take a deep dive into how the CCPA could substantially alter the privacy landscape, drawing on two specific, rapidly-evolving contexts: (1) autonomous vehicles, which generate mountains of data and are required by California law to store much of that sensor data for crash analysis purposes; and (2) AI and machine learning, where machine learning models can often "memorize" information from their training datasets. It will examine whether de-identification of data offers an effective means of ensuring CCPA compliance while still allowing innovative data usage.
