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 grate framework for data compliance.
Unlike the GDPR, however, CCPA does not impose fines on companies directly for failing to maintain compliance – instead, individuals are allowed to take action on their own accord, holding businesses liable for up to $2,500 per individual violation or data breach. The fine in itself might be significant if the number of violations is low, but losing your customers’ trust can have a devastating impact on your brand and shareholder value. Is your business prepared?
The CCPA applies 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.
