California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)

The Consumer Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a wide-ranging privacy law that went 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% of its annual revenue from selling personal information.
The CCPA requires 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.
Businesses that fail 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, other states are implementing similar privacy laws and you can expect more in the future. Complying 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.
