Exploring the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) With Vanessa Wu, from Rippling General Counsel
The Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) caused significant confusion and forced companies to clean up their act online when it was introduced in Europe last year. Now, a new set of regulations, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), is about to go live in 2020 and is giving businesses something else to worry about.
As we continue to redefine the entire landscape of how online user data is to be handled, I explore the impacts of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) With Vanessa Wu, Rippling’s General Counsel.
I also learn how Rippling is the first way for businesses to manage their HR & IT — from payroll and benefits to employee computers and apps — all in one, modern system.
In 90-seconds, a company can onboard a new employee and set up their payroll, health insurance, work computer, and third-party apps like Gmail, Microsoft Office, and Slack. It’s the only platform that unifies every employee system and automates the administrative work behind each.
Vanessa Wu currently serves as the General Counsel and Corporate Secretary of Rippling, the first employee data system of record across all of a company’s HR and IT systems. In this role, she oversees all legal and compliance issues, including corporate governance, product counseling, and regulatory compliance, and influences emerging privacy legal frameworks and data protection strategy.
Prior to Rippling, Vanessa was the General Counsel at LiveRamp, Inc. (NYSE:RAMP), a global leader in identity resolution and data marketplace services for the advertising and marketing ecosystem. Vanessa also previously worked in private practice at the international law firm Latham & Watkins LLP, where she advised technology companies on high-stakes litigation, merger control, and regulatory proceeds involving the intersection of antitrust, data protection, and privacy.
Vanessa graduated, cum laude, from Princeton University, and from the UCLA School of Law, where she was order of the Coif. Vanessa is also a Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP/US) and serves on the advisory board of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP).
