Critical Steps to Manage CCPA Compliance and Risk in 2020
The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) is arguably the most expansive privacy law in U.S. history and will become enforceable in just a matter of months. The CCPA introduces new privacy rights for consumers and will force companies that conduct business in the State of California to implement structural changes to their privacy programs. The new rights given to California consumers are similar to the rights provided in the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The CCPA also subjects non-compliant businesses to expensive fines, class-action lawsuits, and injunctions.
