Expanded Privacy Protections Granted to California Residents: The California Consumer Protection Act
Lisa Gumbs, Senior Consultant, Commercial Services, GDPR, Coalfire
In late June, California passed a new consumer privacy law—the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). This statute provides protections to California residents; but it will also have wide-ranging effects outside of California as it will apply to organizations that conduct business in California. The CCPA, which goes into effect on January 1, 2020, will be the broadest privacy law in the United States, granting more protections to personal data than any current privacy statute.
