The CCPA is a sweeping privacy law that took effect on January 1, 2020, and applies to the processing of personal information of California residents. While the CCPA contains certain exemptions for protected health information protected by Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and personal information collected in "clinical trials" subject to the Common Rule or FDA regulations, the law has important implications for big data research and other studies that are not clinical trials. Other state legislatures are considering legislation that would enact similar privacy protections. This session will provide an update on these state laws and their impact on research to individuals who already have a basic understanding of HIPAA and the Common Rule.
