Privacy Rights Under the California Consumer Privacy Act vs. the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation Whitepaper
With the recent passage of the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA), many people are wondering what the similarities – and just as importantly the differences – are between the CCPA and the EU’s GDPR. Referred to by some as the American version of the GDPR, Santa Clara law professor, Eric Goldman, best described the CCPA when he stated, “while not as comprehensive as the GDPR, it copies some aspects of the GDPR and will squarely impact every Internet service in California.”
To help you understand the similarities and differences between the GDPR and CCPA, we published a whitepaper to help you map your path to compliance and understand how this new law will impact your businesses privacy program.
Download the whitepaper: Privacy Rights Under the California Consumer Privacy Act vs. the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation White Paper
The paper includes:
- Background and timeline of both laws
- Information covered under each law
- Who each law applies to
- Rights of the individuals under each law
- Right of deletion of personal information under each law
- Right to opt out under each law
Although changes are expected to take place before the CCPA’s enactment in 2020, it is important to begin preparing and putting the necessary changes in place to be fully compliant.
