Data security is moving to the top of the executive agenda, with companies paying more attention to what data they have, and how to protect it. Organizations are rolling out more access controls and upgrading their monitoring and assessment capabilities to best manage new regulations on the horizon.
California’s passing of the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CaCPA) on June 28 and adoption of a set of amendments to the law in September has proven to be a strong catalyst for a new focus on data security.
CaCPA becomes effective on Jan. 1, 2020 and includes numerous new and expanded privacy requirements and obligations for businesses, making it the most comprehensive state privacy law in the United States. While CaCPA shares many themes and similarities with the recently passed European General Data Protection Regulation(GDPR), it is very much a U.S. privacy law, grounded in notice, choice, and opt-out sharing restrictions.
