With California enacting a major new data privacy law last year, now is the time for companies to review and adjust to how the California Consumer Privacy Act will impact their business. Slated to go into effect January 1, 2020, the CCPA is set to be the toughest privacy law in the United States by broadly expanding the rights of consumers and requiring businesses within scope to be significantly more transparent about how they collect, use, and disclose personal information. The act comes on the heels of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and provides consumers with a number of "European-style" rights. Businesses all over the world that sell into the California market will be affected, regardless of whether they have a physical presence in the state.
