Don’t let the name fool you. The California Consumer Privacy Act protects—and affects—more than consumers in the Golden State. Signed into law in 2018 to enhance consumer privacy rights and protections for California residents, the law is relevant to any company doing business out of, into, or with the state’s residents.

The CCPA took effect on Jan. 1 of this year; enforcement has been delayed until July 1, by which time the California Attorney General’s Office is required to adopt and finalize regulations relating to the CCPA. Private civil suits are also permitted in limited circumstances.
