Are you ready for CCPA Compliance?
On June 28, 2018 governor of California Jerry Brown signed into law Assembly Bill No. 375, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)1. The CCPA Act, grants to the state’s over 40 million people a range of rights comparable to the rights given to European citizens with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (the two legislations are not that similar, but they do share some general features, GDPR is an omnibus law, while CCPA is more limited).
Since CCPA became a law, it has had two major updates. The first update occurred on the August 24, 2018, with Senate Bill 11212, which introduced 45, largely non-substantive in nature, amendments (mostly addressed technical errors), and the second occurred on February 25, when California’s Attorney General introduced Senate Bill 5613 to further clarify and strengthen the act.
The bulk of the bill has to do specifically with consumer privacy protection. For a more comprehensive review, read How to Prepare for the California Consumer Privacy Act.
Part of the CCPA addresses data security specifically, and Thales provides many of the solutions you will need to comply with this part of the Act.
