The GDPR was a starting block, not the finish line. So corporate legal departments and Legal Ops professionals should already be preparing for the next round of upcoming data privacy laws.
Corporate legal teams are under mounting pressure to confront the data privacy concerns every company is now facing, especially the largest, as public and legislative pressures grow worldwide. Legal Operations teams are being asked to quickly implement processes for reducing data privacy risk.
But a huge part of that challenge? A shifting, patchwork regulatory environment: In addition to 2018’s GDPR regulations, California’s CCPA goes into effect in January 2020, with over a dozen U.S. states developing their own measures without any federal standard to follow. Some of them are proposing regulations even stiffer than the CCPA.
In a new webinar, some acknowledged experts will provide guidance about the new realities in-house legal departments and Legal Ops are having to face:
- Privacy is increasingly being recognized as a fundamental human right worldwide; GDPR was only the start.
- There’s no guarantee that upcoming data privacy laws will be consistent between states, countries, or regions.
- Navigating this patchwork of laws will require exceptional focus and efficiency from legal and compliance professionals.
- Regulators and law enforcement are seriously, even aggressively enforcing data privacy edicts.
- Companies that fail at compliance are exposing themselves to potentially ruinous risks.

Before panic sets in, though, a company’s legal team should avail itself of some expert insight into the challenges upcoming data privacy laws present, and the steps a legal department and Legal Ops can take to meet them.
