The June 14 meeting will focus on informational presentations and establishing subcommittees for the board, which was created under new privacy laws in California.
The California Privacy Protection Agency Board will hold its inaugural public meeting on June 14, 2021.
In November 2020, California voters approved Proposition 24, the California Privacy Rights Act, which amends the California Consumer Privacy Act. Among other changes, the California Privacy Rights Act establishes the California Privacy Protection Agency (CPPA), which will be responsible for additional rulemaking under the California Privacy Rights Act.
The California Privacy Protection Agency’s first meeting will include informational presentations, including on the Administrative Procedures Act, and subcommittee assignments, according to the agenda.
In March, California Gov. Gavin Newsom, Attorney General Xavier Becerra, Senate President pro Tempore Toni G. Atkins (D-San Diego), and Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Lakewood) announced the establishment of the five-member inaugural board for the CPPA. The CPPA is charged with protecting the fundamental privacy rights of consumers over their personal information, according to a news release. The CPPA board consists of experts in privacy, technology and consumer rights.
Its first meeting, at 9 a.m. PDT June 14, will be available via video teleconference and by telephone.
