If it becomes law, the Florida Consumer Protection Act (FCPA) will be most onerous and comprehensive privacy law in the United States. The FCPA will apply to companies that generate more than $25 million in annual revenue, and companies that collect or maintain personal information (defined broadly) about more than 50,000 Florida residents. The law will impose hundreds of thousands of dollars in compliance costs on small and medium businesses, while also creating a private right of action that would allow plaintiffs’ lawyers to sue for millions of dollars in damages and attorney’s fees. It is moving through the state legislature quickly. This webinar will provide an explanation of the law, discuss the real-world implications for Florida businesses, and identify what you can do to minimize the law’s impact.
