The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), Part 1: Law and Risk Management


The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a business game changer. Under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), which took effect on January 1, 2020, businesses must comply with a consumer request to disclose the information it has collected about them. Consumers have the right to have their information deleted, both from the business and any service providers with which the business shared the information.  They also have the right to opt out of the sale of their information, and consumers under the age of 16 must explicitly opt in to any such sales. Most significantly, CCPA also gives consumers a private right of action for data breaches.
