Following closely on the heels of the European Union’s GDPR, the California Consumer Privacy Act – or “CCPA” – is the newest iteration of data privacy rules proliferating around the world. After years of high-profile privacy scandals and as more companies become victims of cybercrime, lawmakers are responding by adopting robust rules that protect the personal information that consumers entrust to a wide range of businesses every day.
This program, presented by Elizabeth Del Cid, Joseph Facciponti, and Shahryar Shaghaghi, will detail the origins, applicability, and requirements of the CCPA, as well as practical compliance considerations. Given the wide applicability of the CPPA to businesses both inside and outside of California, this course will benefit attorneys nationwide.
Joseph Facciponti is a Partner in the New York office of Murphy & McGonigle PC whose practice focuses on cybersecurity, compliance counseling, and white collar matters. For nearly nine years, Mr. Facciponti was a prosecutor at the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, where he handled cases involving a wide-range of financial and computer crimes. In 2010, he received an FBI Director’s Award for outstanding cyber investigation, based on his work in investigating and disrupting a major international computer hacking ring that targeted financial institutions. After leaving the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Mr. Facciponti held a supervisory position in the legal department of HSBC, where he led global internal investigations and advised HSBC regarding its financial crime compliance programs. Mr. Facciponti graduated, magna cum laude, from Cornell Law School and obtained a B.A. in Philosophy from Yale University.
Elizabeth Del Cid is a litigation attorney and partner in the firm’s New York office. In over 13 years of practice, Ms. Del Cid has appeared before federal and state judges at the civil and criminal level, FINRA arbitrators, the SEC’s Enforcement Division, and administrative officers in California, New York, and Iowa. She has advised a myriad of clients, from major broker-dealers to government agencies to individuals from Latin America.
Ms. Del Cid has first chaired bench trials and second chaired jury trials involving multi-millions of dollars in alleged damages. She has litigated several cases where a brokerage firm was forced to deal with the aftermath of a rogue advisor’s Ponzi or cherry picking scheme. She has counseled executives from national and regional financial institutions and their registered salespersons about compliance and supervisory procedures concerning outside business activities, registered investment advisory services, and due diligence of TICs and other securities products. Ms. Del Cid also successfully advocated on behalf of an insurance agent in a five-year long, complex commercial dispute brought on behalf of the beneficiaries of a family trust, alleging conspiracy to violate RICO. She has defended insurance companies in ERISA actions as well.
Although she is an experienced trial attorney, Ms. Del Cid recognizes that not all cases should be resolved by evidentiary hearing. She is a skilled business negotiator and has reached settlements for substantially less than the cost of defense before even participating in mediation.
Early in her legal career, Ms. Del Cid used to make policy and oversee its enforcement on behalf of California municipalities.
Ms. Del Cid is also a FINRA arbitrator, an American Bar Association Law Practice Fellow, an American Bar Association On the Rise – Top 40 Young Lawyers Award recipient, Hispanic National Bar Association’s Top Lawyers under 40 Award recipient, Super Lawyers’ Rising Star honoree for the past three years in a row, and alumna of the American Bar Association’s prestigious Collaborative Bar Leadership Academy.
She is a native Spanish speaker.
