The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) came into force on 1st January 2020. It requires organizations to “implement and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices”. The CCPA is comparable to the European GDPR, enhancing privacy rights and consumer protection for residents of California, United States but it is focused on the resale of personal data while GDPR requirements are broader.
The CCPA applies to any business, including any for-profit entity that collects consumers’ personal data, which does business in California, and satisfies at least one of the following thresholds:
- has annual gross revenues in excess of $25 million;
- buys or sells personal information of 100,000 or more consumers or households; or
- earns more than half of its annual revenue from selling consumers’ personal information.
There are many challenges in reaching CCPA compliance including:
- Determining compliance by having an overview of how marketing, external agencies and vendors and consumer engagement practices are collecting data
- The continued use of manual processes, providing more opportunities for human errors
