CCPA Compliance Software

CCPA Compliance Software

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) went into effect on January 1st, 2020, making California one of the first states in the US to enact a law similar to the EU’s GDPR. The CCPA allows residents of the state to control how businesses handle and process their personal data, giving them the ability to request access to, delete, or opt out of sharing or selling their information. Regulatory experts believe this will set the gold standard for data privacy within the United States and become adopted across multiple states. Therefore, we see CCPA as a benchmark framework for data compliance.

CCPA compliance standards are still evolving. On November 3, 2020, California voters approved the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA), the most comprehensive consumer data privacy law in the United States. Commonly referred to as the CCPA 2.0, the law amends the CCPA and expands the rights of California residents beginning on January 1, 2023. CPRA builds on CCPA’s foundation and aims to enhance consumer privacy protections, as well as the obligations for companies and organizations that process personal information.

Under CCPA guidelines, individuals are allowed to take action on their own accord against companies that fail to maintain compliance, holding businesses liable for up to $2,500 per individual violation or data breach. When CPRA goes into effect, the new California Privacy Protection Agency (CPPA) will also be able to impose fines. The fine in itself might be insignificant if the number of violations is low, but losing your customers’ trust can have a devastating impact on your brand and shareholder value.

CCPA regulations extend to businesses operating in states outside California

CCPA and CPRA apply to any for-profit businesses that meet a certain threshold in size and revenue and that collect or control California residents’ personal information or do business in the state. The act requires that organizations know exactly what PII data they have in their possession, where it resides, and whether or not it is sufficiently secured.
