"Data is the new oil" antitrust and privacy issues

Event Details

October 11, 2019 | 10:00 - 11:00 PT | Monterey, CA | Accreditation 1.0 CLE

State and federal enforcers have begun to investigate whether "big data" gives certain companies competitive advantage – and whether "data monopolies" should be broken up. At the same time, legislators are actively passing new laws that would regulate the collection and use of personal data.

Jeewon Kim Serrato will lead a panel discussion for the Antitrust, UCL and Privacy Section of the California Lawyers Association (CLA) at the CLA's annual meeting in Monterey on Friday, October 11, from 10:00 am to 11:00 am (PT). The panel, "Data is the new oil" antitrust and privacy issues, will provide an overview of the following topics:

  • The new California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)
  • FTC enforcement priorities
  • Key enforcement and litigation risks to watch for in 2020
