At Thursday's surprise news conference, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra stood with nine members of his team and announced the release of the long-awaited proposed California Consumer Privacy Act regulations. "We were assigned this task, we made it clear what it would take to do it well, we intend to do it well, period," Becerra said. The regulations are important and have been eagerly anticipated because they've largely been heralded as the answers to companies' burning questions about some of the law's ambiguities. But some of those tasked with complying with the CCPA or helping their clients do so don't agree that the 24-page document is a win. "The hope was that the [attorney general] was actually going to help by giving more clarity and doing it in language that business could understand and could apply," said Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz Privacy & Data Security Group Chair Tanya Forsheit, CIPP/US, CIPT, PLS. But "they’ve made it worse." IAPP Editor Angelique Carson, CIPP/US, has the story for The Privacy Advisor.
