This presentation will provide a summary of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA), and will delve deeper into the impacts these laws have on businesses and enterprises within the United States.  Case law will be used to explain recent decisions on privacy matters and to discuss where the courts may go interpreting these laws.  How this impacts the security practitioner in their quest to create a practical yet complaint program will be explored through audience Q&A.
