The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) can be enforced as of July 1st, 2020, impacting many businesses in the State of California and beyond, for any company doing business with California customers. Now the CCPA will regulate how companies handle personal information and grant California consumers new rights to access and delete their data while placing restrictions on entities that collect, store, and sell Californians' personal information. And just on the heels of this landmark piece of legislation, lawmakers are now working on passing the CPRA, which, if passed by California voters this November will have even more comprehensive coverage and restrictions.
The CCPA is not the first privacy regulation, and it certainly won't be the last. Other states will likely follow suit and pass similar regulations. Businesses need to create flexible working plans to ensure ongoing compliance with an ever-changing regulatory landscape. Add to that the pressure due to the global spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and the economic impact that followed; businesses had to furlough the workforce or migrate from the traditional office to remote-working environments. This has created additional risks, especially for organizations heavily relying on the IT Sec/Ops teams to monitor security and privacy and enforce regulatory compliance, and perhaps new challenges around collecting and managing employee health data.
