HOUSTON—With the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), California is reaching into the heart of day-to-day data management, retention and use, and spreading its requirements to all national businesses. Other states are considering similar legislation. Soon businesses across all sectors will need to calculate their treatment of data in light of multiple, and possibly conflicting, state requirements.

With that in mind, Womble Bond Dickinson’s Houston office joined with the Association of Corporate Counsel’s Houston Chapter for a CLE luncheon titled, “You Can No Longer Cry Over Spilt Milk—You Must Prepare to Prevent the Spill: How to Economically Comply With Changes In State Regulation of Data Management in the US”.

Womble Bond Dickinson attorney Ted Claypoole, a nationally recognized authority on privacy and data security issues, spoke at the CLE event. He was joined in the discussion by Phillips 66 Senior Counsel Candace McCaddon, who has significant experience in data privacy and cybersecurity issues.

Claypoole and McCaddon discussed how the CCPA changes the way businesses are permitted to operate in the US, how to companies can make compliance as cost-effective as possible, and the new and likely forthcoming data restrictions in the US states.

The event attracted 70 attendees, including Womble Bond Dickinson attorneys Taylor Ey, Liz Klingensmith, Kristin Lamb and Karthika Perumal.
