The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is the nation’s strictest consumer privacy and data protection legislation. Passed last-minute in June 2018, with cleanup legislation following a few months later, the act has been seen as a compromise among privacy proponents, the legislature, and the business community. This far-reaching legislation impacts business entities across industries, and many are grappling with interpreting its requirements to ensure that their privacy and data security policies and procedures are compliant by 2020.
