Increased Privacy Protection for California Consumers
California’s newly enacted privacy law is set to become the most stringent and comprehensive piece of data protection legislation in the US. Although the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) doesn’t take effect until January 2020, the bill represents a major development for the privacy rights of US consumers — and for companies that collect, process, or otherwise use their data.
A new paper by Marsh — CCPA: A Paradigm Shift for US Privacy Law — looks at the scope and requirements of the legislation and how it compares with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation. The briefing also outlines the implications for subject companies and recommends steps that organizations can take now to assess their risk exposures and review and align their insurance coverages.
