Data privacy laws have existed in the United States and Europe for decades, but they’ve recently received a major update with the passage of two new laws. The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) share the same basic goal of protecting personal data.
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) isn’t simply a U.S.
version of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation
(GDPR). If you’ve already prepared for GDPR, you won’t have to start
over to prepare for CCPA, but that doesn’t mean you have all the
CCPA has additional requirements and is more prescriptive than GDPR.
In particular, differences in the scope of application, nature, and extent
of collection limitations, and rules concerning accountability presents
different operational challenges for compliance.
Since CCPA became law in early 2020, the California Attorney General
has made a number of modifications to clarify how businesses should
implement privacy requirements. As CCPA continues to evolve and
new laws for California and other states emerge, you must continue
to update and tailor your privacy operations.
