Your guide to California privacy compliance

The California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA) is the most comprehensive privacy law to date in the United States. It requires more transparency from companies and it can be a significant effort to comply with the law. CCPA has many similarities with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) however there are significant differences.

Does my organization need to worry about CCPA?

CCPA applies to all organizations that collect personal information of California citizens and meet at least one of the following criteria as it relates to their business operations:

Exceed $25 Million in Revenue
Hold personal data of over 50,000 California residents
> 50% of annual revenue is from the sale of personal information

The high costs CCPA non-compliance

The consequences of non-compliance with CCPA can be significant, especially for organizations that manage high volumes of personal information. Business that receive a notice of non-compliance have 30 days to remedy the situation before any legal action is taken, however, if the business remains non-compliant, fines range from $2,500 to $7,500 per record. If you are dealing with millions of records these fines can be crippling.

Additionally, the CCPA gives California residents the right to private legal action against companies who do not comply. This can add significant costs and legal burdens to organizations that do not take compliance seriously.
