Please join us for a discussion of developments in privacy law both in California and nationwide. The panel will discuss the state of privacy laws as they stand today, including state and federal laws, how they differ, and what companies can be expected to do to address these varying sets of laws. The panel will then move on to a discussion of privacy regulators, including the CPPA, FTC, CISA, and DOJ, and how those regulators can be expected to handle different types of privacy-related regulations. Finally, the panel will touch on how developments in privacy law have impacted privacy-related litigation, including litigation trends, recent standing-related issues, and the potential impact of Supreme Court opinions relating to free speech on privacy litigation.
