CCPA is Here | Are You Compliant?
It would be in the best interest of your business to get on board. July 1, 2020, is the day that the California AG and all of California’s residents will have an opportunity to hold your company to account. Severe financial penalties will now follow failure to comply. There can be lawsuits, state, and consumer fines. For a company handling large amounts of consumer data, a single breach can cost them $2500 per consumer.
Set Your Sights on Washington State
Washington State will be implementing the new Washington Privacy Act (WPA) which was recently released for the public. Washington has not only met the standards provided by the CCPA but has upped the ante for all future privacy legislation to come. The bill is so comprehensive that it may lead as an example for more upcoming changes in proposed federal legislation, and other state legislations across the country.
