Join us on Tuesday, April 19 for our monthly chapter meeting with a special guest speaker: 

Regulatory Developments, AI and Cybersecurity
by Charlyn Ho and Cassandra Carley

The California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA), one of the most comprehensive privacy rights legislation in the country, was adopted by a majority of California voters on November 3, 2020, and goes into effect January 1, 2023. The CPRA amends the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and, among other things, adds new opt-out and access requirements for “profiling” and automated decision making. Join us for a timely discussion with Perkins Coie technology transactions and privacy attorney Charlyn Ho and privacy litigation attorney Cassandra Carley regarding how the new California ballot initiative will affect AI and the intersection of privacy and data security.
