Consumer privacy and data collection are at the forefront of technology-driven policy issues facing lawmakers at the state and federal levels. California’s latest privacy legislation, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), grants state residents new, wide-ranging rights pertaining to the collection and use of their personal information.
Passed by the California Assembly in 2018, CCPA is a groundbreaking law designed to protect consumer privacy. Its application is estimated to affect more than 500,000 businesses while substantially impacting companies that collect and utilize consumer-level data. California isn’t the first state to pass privacy legislation; however, given that its economy is the fifth-largest in the world, this new law will impact organizations on a global scale.
