With the California Consumer Privacy Act taking effect Jan. 1, 2020, and becoming enforceable July 1, 2020, it is time for organizations to take a closer look at the CCPA and begin preparing toward compliance. The IAPP and OneTrust fielded an early 2019 survey 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?
To monitor how levels of CCPA preparedness are changing over time, the IAPP and OneTrust fielded a follow-up survey in July to August 2019, which you can find here.
