California's new privacy law, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), provides a private right of action for consumers whose nonencrypted or nonredacted personal information is subject to a data breach as a result of a business’s violation of the duty to implement and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices. Following the CCPA's January 1st effective date, an initial wave of litigation has emerged, testing the contours of the CCPA's private right of action. Most recently plaintiffs are targeting a particular strain of CCPA litigation and focusing on a cloud-based communications service provider whose services have been increasingly used to facilitate remote work. During this webinar, we will explore the themes emerging from the complaints in this initial wave of CCPA litigation, including cases springing out of circumstances related to the coronavirus pandemic, examine potential defenses in response to these claims, and discuss what it means to maintain “reasonable security procedures and practices, including how businesses can proactively improve their data security postures and strengthen their CCPA compliance programs.
