California Bill No. 375, also known as the California Consumer Privacy Act, was
approved and passed on the 28th of June 2018. While it won’t come into effect until
January 1st, 2020, it is necessary for all organizations involved to have a comprehensive understanding of the law’s requirements and what is expected of them. The Act is applicable to any business, partnership, company, corporation, or legal entity that operates for the purpose of profiting as well as collects consumer’s personal information from the state of California. While The Act has certain similarities to the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), it’s conditions are somewhat different.
