GDPR + CCPA From a Credit Union Perspective

July 21, 2022 // 1 pm CT

Join us for a high-level presentation on the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”), as amended by the California Privacy Rights Act of 2020 (“CPRA”) (collectively, the “CCPA”). These new and ever-changing regulations impact the way your credit union uses, and protects, member data.

Joseph Garibyan, Partner with a law firm specializing in privacy and cybersecurity, and a legal leader in regulatory and compliance issues, will address:

  • Territorial scope of the GDPR and the CCPA
  • Exceptions to coverage applicable to credit unions, such as exceptions pertaining to financial sector privacy laws (i.e., Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act)
  • Data inventory, mapping and classification with respect to GDPR and CCPA
  • Common GDPR and CCPA requirements
  • Cross-border data transfers under GDPR
  • Penalties for non-compliance and enforcement mechanisms
  • Frequently asked questions about the CPRA

This session is Council member-only.  Only register if you are a current CUNA Councils member.
