Your Customer's Privacy Rights: Dealing with California's New Privacy Law and Other Privacy Laws
10/22/2019 11:00 AM PT - 12:00:00 PM PT

As technology continues to shape the electronic credit department and the ease in which customer information may be collected and shared, a credit team should be mindful of a customer's privacy rights, especially in light the enactment of California's new privacy law. California's privacy law, which goes into effect January 1, 2020, is far reaching with its expansive definition of protected information, and likely to lead to a broadening of other states' privacy laws. In this webcast, Sean Lowe, Esq. and Scott Blakley, Esq. will discuss:

• Different laws governing privacy rights still in effect today
• Who must comply: B2B and B2C facing businesses
• Personal information and the credit team
• Rights and obligations to comply
• Data breach and notice requirements
• Establishing a customer information security programs
• Risk flags and monitoring
• Training credit and sales teams
• Information retrieval and payment strategies
• Fines and penalties
