Life Science Educational Call (February 2020)

Time: 11:00-11:45 AM Eastern (45 minutes)
Format: Educational Call
Topic: California Consumer Privacy Act: Impact on Health Care and Life Sciences Companies

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) has created new rights and obligations regarding the collection, use, and sharing of California residents’ personal information. Beginning January 1, 2020, the CCPA gives California residents new rights over their information, imposes additional obligations on certain businesses that collect and use California residents’ information, and creates a private right of action for California residents impacted by data breaches. In this educational call, the presenters will discuss the impact of the CCPA on health care and life sciences companies. The presenters will consider the impact of the CCPA on both local California companies and national companies that collect information about California residents. We will address the types of “businesses” covered by the CCPA and the definitional carve-outs that may apply to certain health care and life sciences companies. We will also focus on the CCPA exceptions relevant to these industries, including the HIPAA, CMIA, and clinical trial exceptions, as well as the exception for de-identified and aggregate data and its relationship to HIPAA de-identification standards

Note: No CLE offered for this course.
