July 1, 2020 was a monumental day when it came to privacy laws in the United States. It was the day that the CCPA was enforced. For the first time in the US, we saw a comprehensive consumer privacy framework that applied to a general population. Earlier compliance mandates such as the PCI DSS, HIPAA, and the GLBA were concerned about data privacy within specific industries. However, the CCPA applies to any California resident and empowers them with certain rights and privileges when it comes to their personal information. The CCPA is going to set the benchmark in ensuring the privacy of residents for any future state or federal law.
The CCPA actually came into effect on January 1, 2020. Therefore, companies were already expected to have in place the processes necessary to comply by that date itself. After the enforcement date on July 1, the California attorney general’s office has started enforcing this as a law. Any violation is now be taken very seriously and the California attorney general’s office will levy penalties. Consumers can also have a legal recourse for any privacy mishap.
“If they are not (operating properly), I will descend on them and make an example of them, to show that if you don’t do it the right way, this is what is going to happen to you.”
– Xavier Becerra, California attorney general, in December 2019
Not only does the CCPA give consumers new rights and privileges, it also makes it necessary for organizations to put special emphasis on security and privacy controls. What are these new rights and privileges, and what are these security and privacy controls?
