What You Really Need To Know About the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)

There is something you really need to know about the State of California. They have optimized around a key function that they do very very well. They know how to collect money from corporations. They know how to collect taxes, and know how to levy large fines and collect on them. The business that owes California money will pay, and the State will likely do everything in their power to make sure they pay as much as the law allows.

Keep this in mind as you consider the recent change to California law known as the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) (aka California 2020).

The law goes into effect in January 2020. There are indications that there will be a very small grace period (up to 6 months) since some final regulations may be promulgated in January. But after that, if you are in violation you can be fined and the State will come for you.

This post provides insights on what you need to know about the CCPA.
