Sacramento – Margaret Gladstein, partner at Capitol Advocacy, has recently been traveling up and down the West Coast to speak on California’s groundbreaking privacy law, the California Consumer Privacy Act. Gladstein has spoken to the National Retail Federation’s privacy meeting in Los Angeles, Perkins Coie’s Breakfast Briefing Series in Seattle and the Connected Commerce Council meeting in Sacramento.
“CCPA is a law that effects so many companies doing business in California” said Gladstein. “This sweeping privacy law creates unprecedented rights for consumers by providing them with a greater degree of transparency and choice with respect to their personal information. But even after last year’s end of session bill (SB 1121 – Dodd) which fixed some of the glaring errors in CCPA, there are still changes needed to enable companies to be confident in their ability to meet the requirements of CCPA.
“My talks to these organizations have been about the political and policy challenges we face in trying to amend CCPA in a way that works for business but doesn’t undermine the key tenets of CCPA,” Gladstein continued.
Gladstein is recognized as one of Sacramento’s leading lobbyists on privacy issues. Since her work for the Assembly Banking and Finance Committee where she helped craft the California Financial Privacy Act in 2003, Margaret has been engaged on privacy issues. At Capitol Advocacy, Gladstein has represented retail, technology and financial service companies on a wide range of privacy and data security legislation.
