Going into effect on January 1, 2020, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) may seem in the distant future, but there is no better time to prepare for its impact on day-to-day marketing than now. On the heels of planning for the highly anticipated launch of GDPR, it is now time to shift our focus to California.
The CCPA will make California the first state in the U.S. to enact a law that largely mirrors the stringent data protection and privacy requirements of GDPR. This seemingly “under the radar” initiative has garnered less attention than GDPR, however, marketers need to be just as prepared.
