Stubbs Alderton & Markiles’ partner Kevin DeBré’s article on Data Protection Laws has been published in the California Lawyers Association (CLA) Business Law News. The article is titled “Data Protection Laws Are Here, But What Do They Mean for California Businesses?’

Kevin and his co-author, Jordan Yallen compare California’s new privacy law to the European Union’s recently enacted General Data Protection Regulation, and recommend steps that businesses can take to avoid (as much as possible) problems of compliance that result from the multiplicity of privacy regimes.
