In just over six months, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) will come into effect; but meanwhile, the California legislature continues to hold hearings and debate a slew of new amendments to the law. Legislatures in numerous other states – including Illinois, Maine, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, and Texas – are also considering their own consumer privacy bills, while federal legislators announce weekly that national legislation is imminent. With so much uncertainty as to what privacy law in the U.S. will require in the future, organizations face difficult decisions regarding how to prioritize privacy compliance projects.
In this webinar, DWT partner Nancy Libin and counsel Rachel Marmor reviewed how building a foundation of good data management now can save money and allow your organization to move nimbly when new laws are enacted in the future. We discussed:
- The building blocks of an information governance program
- Why data discovery is not just a technology project
- The three data management policies every organization should have
- How to use a defensible data disposal program to reduce compliance burdens
