Authored by RIMS External Affairs Committee member Teri Cotton Santos, the report addresses the rights provided to consumers under the CCPA, the obligations it creates for businesses, as well as practical steps companies should take to prepare for its implementation date.
The CCPA was signed into law in June and became the broadest U.S. framework imposing consent and disclosure obligations on businesses that collect personal information on California consumers. Similar to the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the law applies to companies collecting personal information on California consumers whether or not the company is based in the state. The CCPA becomes effective on January 1, 2020.
“How organizations use and collect personal information continues to be a top concern for regulators and many consumers,” said Ms. Cotton Santos. “Now is the time for risk professionals to have discussions with internal stakeholders about the implementation of the CCPA and its impact on their organization’s operations and strategy.”
