California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) has implications far beyond California and represents a shift in U.S. data privacy regulation—in a new article from Messaging Architects

CCPA Compliance
Taking a proactive approach to CCPA compliance will prepare your business to thrive in the evolving data compliance landscape.

Messaging Architects, an eMazzanti Technologies Company and data compliance services provider, discusses anticipated effects of the coming data privacy regulations in California (CCPA) and other states in a new article on the Messaging Architects website.

The informative article answers the question, “What is the CCPA?” and describes the basics of the California mandate. In addition, the steps to CCPA compliance are presented, including the requirement to add a clearly marked, “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” link to websites and apps. The author then discusses other U.S. data privacy laws and industry action on the topic.

“The CCPA represents a significant shift in attitudes about data privacy regulation in the United States,” stated Greg Smith, Vice President of Services Delivery at Messaging Architects. “Taking a proactive approach to CCPA compliance will prepare your business to thrive in the evolving data compliance landscape.”

Below are a few excerpts from the article, “Data Privacy Laws and CCPA Compliance in California Affect Businesses Everywhere.

What is the CCPA?

“In 2018, California passed a sweeping data privacy act based on the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This Consumer Privacy Act requires compliance by all businesses that collect data related to California residents, have annual gross revenues of at least $25 million and collect personal information on 50,000 or more consumers.”

“In addition, the regulations affect third-party suppliers who provide goods and services to companies required to comply with CCPA. That means that even if you do not have an office in California or meet the revenue and size specifications, the law may still apply to your business.”

Steps to CCPA Compliance

1)    “Include a clearly marked “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” link on websites and apps.”
2)    “Audit your data. Know what kinds of personal information your business gathers or processes. Know where the data lives and who has access to it. This includes data reaching back to January 1, 2019.”
