As detailed in a prior blog post, California’s new privacy law, commonly referred to as the CCPA, seeks to impose tougher privacy requirements on companies that collect and use consumer data. Although the law does not go into effect until 2020, California’s attorney general has already called into question his office’s ability to comply with the operational obligations of the CCPA and raised questions about its potential modification of California’s Unfair Competition Law, and businesses are working to find ways to narrow their impending disclosure obligations prior to the law’s enactment. Concerns about the breadth of the law and the ability to enforce it will continue to be weighed against the current push to expand consumer privacy protection.
