Episode 10: Significant Privacy Considerations Challenging Companies in 2020 and 2021

January 7, 2021

Over the last few weeks, months, and years, there have been a lot of developments in the privacy world. For instance, Californians voted to replace the California Consumer Privacy Act with the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) in November. Additionally, the new administration is likely to be more privacy-minded, and they’ll also need to renegotiate legal transfers of personal data from the EU to the US. 

COVID-19 has also resulted in significant changes, largely due to the movement towards work-from-home arrangements. People are now handling and processing confidential information on their own home networks, posing some serious security risks. So, how do we continue to protect privacy where workforces are distributed? 

With all these recent developments, CGL privacy counsel Jessica Clark joins the podcast to help us navigate the privacy ecosystem. She talks about what these changes mean and what to expect in 2021. 

We also tackle the biggest question: what should companies be doing moving forward given the risks involved? 


In this episode, you will hear:

  • Why privacy is such a hot topic on the global stage
  • The drivers behind recent privacy developments
  • Some of the more significant developments
  • Details about CPRA and how companies can become CPRA-compliant
  • Some tips for early-stage companies in managing data
  • What enforcement looks like in California under the new Data Protection Agency
  • What we expect from the Biden administration in 2021
  • Some important definitions
