The protection of consumer data has been a hot topic for the last few years. GDPR created an actionable process for EU citizens to have their data removed from use and companies are facing serious fines for not doing so. Now, the state of California is getting ready to implement their own data protection law for their residents, the California Consumer Privacy Act or CCPA.
This regulation goes into effect on January 1st, 2020, only a short couple of months away, so we wanted to provide some guidelines on how better data management can help your compliance success.
The CCPA applies to companies that collect and process the personally identifiable information (PII) of California residents. They must meet at least one of the following:
It’s worth noting that nonprofits and companies that don’t meet any of the three requirements do not have to comply with CCPA.
Californian residents have four ways to protect their personal data under the new law:
Businesses that fail to comply with a CCPA request could be liable for penalties up to $2,500 per violation and $7,500 per intentional violation. Once notified of a violation, companies have 30 days to comply in order to avoid penalties.
