The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) represents a major advancement in privacy rights for California residents – and a major set of obligations for companies that have customers in the state, regardless of where in the world they are located physically. The CCPA imposes a number of obligations on companies that process or control information on California residents, much like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) did for companies with customers and prospects in the European Union.
The CCPA is part of a growing trend toward increasing privacy regulations being enacted worldwide, including Australia’s new data breach notification law, India’s Personal Data Protection Bill of 2018, and Brazil’s new General Data Privacy Law 2018, among others. Add these to the already existing laws that address data privacy, such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), as well as a growing number of proposed laws that are similar in scope to the CCPA.
