We Might Be Close to Final CPRA Regulations, with More to Come
The California Privacy Protection Agency (CPPA) Board will hold its third public hearing on February 3, 2023, at 10 am PST.
The meeting will open with the Chairperson’s Update, during which CPPA Chairperson Jennifer Urban will likely address the status of the delayed California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) regulations. Chairperson Urban is also a Clinical Professor of Law, the Director of the Samuelson Law, Technology & Public Policy Clinic, and the Co-Director of the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology at the UC Berkeley School of Law. Hopefully, we will see further guidance on the technical requirements of the CPRA and the implementation standards.
Long-awaited amendments and the possible adoption of final CPRA rules are on the agenda. The agenda includes preliminary rulemaking activity for new regulations on risk assessments, cybersecurity audits, and automated decision-making. The fact that the CPPA is undertaking other rulemaking activities may indicate that the Board hopes to adopt the final CPRA regulations at this meeting. Fingers crossed. Members of the public can join the meeting on Zoom.
Members of the public attending will be given the opportunity to comment on each agenda item before any Board action. To view the agenda and learn more about how you can attend, click here.
