U.S. Privacy Update: CCPA & WPA

With the latest revisions to the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) released on 11 March, we will be joined by Amy Yeung, General Counsel and Chief Privacy Officer at Lotame, and Kim Smouter, Head of Public Affairs and Professional Standards at ESOMAR, for a roundtable discussion on what the latest developments mean for you.

Our experts will not only discuss these key updates, but also provide their insights on the proposed Washington Privacy Act, and end with some reflections on COVID-19 and privacy as the world races to develop technologies to help contain its spread.

In light of the difficult situation we all face, we would like to make this webinar accessible to as many of you as possible. This is why we are inviting you to join our experts for this session at the member rate of €35.
