White Paper / Risk Management
The California Consumer Privacy Act

As of January 1, 2020, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) became effective. The law gives consumers the right to control their personal information and how its being used by businesses. Similar to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the European Union, the CCPA provides greater protection for residents within California and defines more broadly what’s covered in the personal information that’s being collected.

With the continued used of digital and social platforms, consumers are being exposed to more opportunities for personal data collection. To provide control and ownership of how their personal data is used, the new law provides California residents with the right to:

  • Understand how information is being used
  • Identify the source of the information that is collected
  • Access to the personal data collected
  • Opportunity to opt of having their information sold to third parties
  • Request for personal data to be held or deleted

Entities doing business within California must comply with the law and should review their cyber/network privacy insurance policies to be sure that they are ready to respond to allegations that the business may be in violation of with the CCPA.
