Ready, Set, Sustain: Six Steps Toward CCPA Compliance
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is the first major piece of United States privacy legislation, but it won’t be the last. There are already similar bills in the works in Washington, Hawaii, Massachusetts, New Mexico, Rhode Island and Maryland. Introduced on June 28, 2018, the CCPA adopts much of its framework from the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – although there are some subtle differences. For example, the CCPA extends its protections to households and devices, not just individuals, and includes the right to opt-out of the sale of personal information.
