Since at least the 1970s, California has been the leading state in the area of personal privacy. The right to privacy was added to the California Constitution in 1972 and the state has been among the first to enact laws relating to financial, healthcare and online privacy. In fact California has dozens of laws that provide privacy rights to its residents and obligations to businesses, many more laws than are known by most.

In this webinar we will examine several of the most important California privacy laws, some of which have inspired similar laws in other states, some that act as an effective national standard, and some that are less widely known but could result in liability for the unwary. We will discuss entities to which the laws apply, the primary requirements of each law, and the potential for liability if requirements are not met. The panel also will discuss how California is impacting actions in other states and at the federal level.
