Like the way GDPR
was meant to protect the personal data of European Union (EU) citizens; similarly, CCPA is intended to protect consumer’s personal information by enhancing the privacy rights of the residents of California, the United States through stringent law and regulation. The act is soon going to be implemented from January 1, 2020, which is only a few months away. With the importance given to data privacy and security, AB-375
provides California residents the rights to control their personal information used by companies. California consumers can even sue the company if they do not abide by the privacy guidelines, as stated by the CCPA and also incorporates hefty non-compliance fines.
