California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)


The Consumer Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a wide-ranging privacy law that will come into effect on January 1st, 2020. It regulates how businesses collect, use and disclose just about any kind of information that relates to an individual. It covers any business that earns $25 million in revenue per year overall, or sells 50,000 consumer records per year, or derives 50 percent of its annual revenue from selling personal information.

The CCPA will require businesses to implement new policies and procedures to ensure the protection of personal information for Californian residents. What’s more, the law expands what’s considered “personal information” and includes data elements not previously considered personal information under any U.S. law. It also gives California residents some new rights to make data requests to businesses that handle their data.

Any organization that handles information from Californian residents will be affected by the CCPA. Businesses that failure to comply with the CCPA can incur fines and face private right of actions from individuals. Even if your business does not deal with California residents, you can expect other states to implement similar privacy laws in the future. Preparing to comply with CCPA’s core principles of meaningful transparency and choice will set your organization on the right track for the future of U.S. privacy regulation.
