Haven’t given the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) much thought? This may be a sign that your organization is in need of a CCPA intervention. The CCPA, which takes effect in less than six months, is a new California privacy law aimed towards providing consumers greater control and transparency over how certain businesses use their personal information. Despite its name, organizations don’t have to be located in California for the law to apply. The CCPA’s broad territorial scope sweeps in most for-profit organizations that come into contact with California residents’ personal information and may also impose obligations on service providers and other third parties. Given that a violation could result in $7,500 penalty – every organization should carefully consider whether the CCPA applies.
