Panel 1: California Constitutional Privacy – What, How, and Why

IAPP Credits Available


The “moving force” behind this new constitutional provision was to protect against the “modern threat” related to the “encroachment on personal freedom and security caused by increased surveillance and data collection activity in contemporary society.”   

This panel will lay the historical background for what, how, and why the Constitutional right to Privacy exists in California law. Panelists will draw parallels between the surveillance harms that initially motivated the right and the challenges present today.
