California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA)

The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) (Assembly Bill AB-375) was passed on June 28th 2018 and is designed to protect the personal data of California state residents.  Companies worldwide must comply with CCPA by January 1, 2020.

The International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) has published an in-depth analysis of what is required to comply with this new legislation.

Update: Microsoft agreed to honor the CCPA’s new privacy rights throughout the United States in a November 2019 blog post.
