Many businesses devoted substantial resources to privacy compliance in 2020, thanks to the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). They will be rewarded for that effort: during the fall election, Californians approved a ballot initiative that will strengthen the CCPA, dedicate billions of state dollars to privacy enforcement, and create a new enforcement agency for personal privacy rights.
Earlier this summer, the Attorney General of California issued draft regulations to clarify and expand certain parts of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). On August 14, the draft regulations took effect. This means that, two years after its tumultuous drafting and passage, the full CCPA and its associated regulations are in effect. In addition, the Attorney General now has a full set of rules to enforce regarding how companies collect, use, and store “personal information” of California residents.
July 1 has arrived, which means that the California Attorney General (AG) may now enforce the state’s recently-enacted privacy statute, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). Because of the breadth of the law, and the multiple evolutions of its requirements, this is a good time to check in on your compliance – even if you did some footwork at the end of 2019 in anticipation of the new law – to ensure that you are up to date with all the new elements of the CCPA.
California’s new privacy rules, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), took effect early this year. The CCPA is the state’s effort to protect the privacy of California residents by setting ground rules for collection and use of their “personal information.” These rules have caused quite a lot of confusion, however. High on the “confusing” list: information covered by other privacy-related laws such as HIPAA and Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA).
Full implementation for the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) continues to be a piecemeal affair. The California Attorney General (AG) released updated draft implementing regulations earlier this month. The updates to the pending regulations are designed to (1) bring more clarity and (2) respond to the input the AG’s office has received from the public at large about how the CCPA should work.
