The California Privacy Protection Agency Is Not Wasting Time

In a meeting agenda released today, the California Privacy Protection Agency made it clear that they are going to move quickly and start implementing changes straightaway.

California Enforcement Agency (CPPA) to Make Compliance Essential for Businesses

When the California Consumer Privacy Act went into effect last year there was concern surrounding enforcement and which business would be the first to face consequences. California voters decided that an agency should be put in place to uphold compliance.

Data breaches and technology are evolving at such a rapid rate. In the first half of 2020 alone, data breaches significantly increased by 273% compared to 2019, making privacy laws and regulations such as the CCPA paramount in protecting consumer rights.

CPRA is Inches Away from the November Ballot

California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA)
The California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) inches closer and closer to the November 2020 ballot. With the number of signatures being verified, Los Angeles County was the latest county added to the statistical total of 75 percent. The current status stands at an impressive 78 percent of the overall signatures confirmed so far. Although not entirely in the clear, it appears that the CPRA ballot initiative will likely make it to the 2020 ballot, which means additional updates to the existing CCPA law are possible.

Could CCPA Enforcement Be Delayed?

As the proposed amendment California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) teeters on the edge of uncertainty, so could the enforcement date for the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). The California attorney general has previously stated that the enforcement date for the CCPA will begin July 1, 2020, leaving many businesses rushing to ensure they meet CCPA compliance to avoid potential fines. However, the attorney general's draft for the proposed enforcement regulation needs to be submitted to the state Office of Administrative Law (OAL) for review along with the State Administrative Procedures Act to enforce such regulations.

CCPA 2.0/CPRA (California Privacy Rights Act) – Teetering On the Edge

Despite missing the April 21, 2020 target date, the advocacy group, Californians for Consumer Privacy, is still moving forward with their attempt to qualify the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) on the November 2020 ballot. This new ballot initiative has until June 25, 2020, to get at least 623,212 signatures verified by state and county officials but it’s a complicated and perilous process to secure a spot in the general elections, as explained by Michael Hellbusch from Rutan & Tucker.
