California Consumer Privacy Act vs GDPR: What you need to know

The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) is the first of its kind law in the US that will give greater privacy rights to consumers who reside in the state. The California Consumer Privacy Act comes soon after the enactment of the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and borrows many of its core principles.

The Act, which goes into effect January 1, 2020, also grants consumers unprecedented control over their personal information and enshrines in California law a significant number of data subject rights that GDPR provides for. The Act also imitates GDPR’s emphasis with fines for violations and the provision for private right to action to ensure that law has teeth.
