Extract from Bobby Balachandran’s article “CCPA…The Most Significant Impact on Litigation Since FRCP”
I have a simple question for all the GCs, CPOs, and CISOs out there: Are you ready for the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)? Because it’s coming, whether you’re ready or not, on January 1, 2020. (And ten other states will soon follow suit with similar, but different, regulations.)
Depending on the timing, polling group, and survey methodology, reports suggest somewhere between 45% and 86% of companies will not be ready or do not even plan to be ready by then.
If you ask me, those figures are probably optimistic. I suspect that most organizations who expect to be ready aren’t as close as they think. Why? Here’s my thought process.
