California Consumer Privacy Act
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a new state law that went into January 1, 2020. This law includes the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 and amendments to the Unfair Competition Law. Essentially, it gives California residents “the right to know what personal information companies collect about them.” The CCPA covers a variety of personally identifiable data, including demographic information, financial history, social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, and any other information that can be used to identify an individual.
The breadth of personal information covered by the CCPA, extends beyond what is typically governed by U.S. privacy laws; this is complicating business operations for organizations that must comply with this set of regulations.
