Extract from Mike Quartararo’s article “Challenges Of The California Consumer Privacy Act”
Passed more than a year ago, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) goes into effect on January 1, 2020. It is considered the most comprehensive privacy law in the United States to date. If corporate legal operation professionals have not taken steps to comply with these new privacy and data protection rules, it is essential to now focus intently on getting your organization ready.
The CCPA was passed in response to growing consumer concern about data protection and privacy and to provide residents of California some level of control over the personal information that companies collect.
