What is the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)?

The most stringent US based data privacy law, California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) was approved on June 28, 2018 and will go into effect on January 1, 2020. California has always been a first-mover on data privacy and generally sets the requirements adopted nationwide by other states.

CCPA Applicability

CCPA applies to any business that has more than $25 million in revenue, or buys or sells the personal information of 50,000 or more consumers, or derives 50 percent or more of its annual revenue from selling consumers’ personal information, and that does any amount of business in the State of California. So, if your revenue is over $25 million, and you do business with even one (1) customer in California, you must be fully compliant with the CCPA very early next year.
