The final regulations under the California Consumer Privacy Act, introduced by the California Attorney General last October, became effective on August 14, 2020. The AG has already implemented many of the changes suggested in the public comments, but there are still several open questions that businesses are grappling with as they implement the regulations. This article discusses potential implementation issues and considerations for businesses as they work to incorporate the CCPA regulations in their business privacy practices.
A new law, the California Privacy Rights Act of 2020 (the CPRA), a modified version of the CCPA, will appear on the November 2020 ballot in California and passage seems imminent, adding to a company’s compliance burden under the CCPA. Businesses need to monitor the CPRA and identify how the changes between the CCPA and the CPRA will impact a business’s privacy practices.
