  • Peter McLaughlin will explain what the CCPA requires, how it applies globally and predicted impact of the CCPA in the US and the UK 

  • Malcolm Dowden will then explain why the CCPA, while a game changer for the US, does not go as far as GDPR, including the critical difference whereby the CCPA does not require businesses to have a legal basis for processing personal data

  • Panel discussion: How are UK and other firms identifying their CCPA risk, how to benefit from GDPR operations, and what requirements are unique. Q&A and an opportunity for the audience to participate and challenge the predictions, propose their thoughts and share their experiences.
