The swift passage of the California Consumer Privacy Act by the California legislature last summer caught many privacy professionals off guard. Given the haste with which it became law, as well as a number of drafting errors, many organizations seemed to have taken a wait-and-see approach to compliance. But now, with the law taking effect Jan. 1, 2020, and becoming enforceable July 1, 2020, it is clearly time for organizations to take a closer look at the CCPA and begin preparing toward compliance. This is the second wave survey that IAPP and OneTrust has fielded, as the first report was released in early 2019 to determine where U.S. privacy professionals stand on CCPA compliance: Do they expect a federal bill to take its place? Have their efforts over the past two years to build programs compliant with the EU General Data Protection Regulation reduced the lift on CCPA compliance? What’s getting in the way of meeting the CCPA’s standards, and what factors are lighting fires to address the CCPA now? Download the report to see how companies are approaching CCPA compliance and their level of readiness.
