2020 witnessed several landmark data protection and privacy events, including record-breaking fines for HIPAA violations, the handing down of the Schrems II ruling from the European Court of Justice, and the start of enforcement of the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA). In addition, EU data protection authorities levied multi-million Euro fines on companies for GDPR violations, and did so in spite of the battle against COVID-19.

2021 promises to be equally tumultuous, with the prospect of CCPA-like laws from New York and Washington state, the resolution of privacy complaints against some of the world's largest technology companies, and the prospect of a complete shutdown of trans-Atlantic data transfers.

In this live fireside chat, Spirion team members will discuss the biggest privacy events of 2020 and what may be in store for 2021.

Takeaways include:

•  What we know about CCPA enforcement to date and what's to come
•  Trends in data protection software and how to prepare for the future
•  What to expect from data protection authorities in the U.K. and EU
•  Changes to make in your data protection program in light of Schrems II
