Who does CCPA apply to?
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is the state’s user data privacy law protecting personally identifiable information (PII). PII is defined as “information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household.” Organizations—regardless of location—who do business in California or with Californians have to comply if they fit into any of the below categories:
- Have a gross annual revenue of over $25 million
- Buy, receive, or sell the personal information of 50,000 or more California residents, households, or devices
- Derive 50% or more of their annual revenue from selling California residents’ personal information
What are CCPA compliance software requirements?
CCPA gives residents the right to have more control over how their PII is handled. To meet these rights, organizations must give notice and receive consent for what information they collect, how they use it, and who they share it with. Additionally, organizations have to complete remediation actions upon user request, such as accessing PII, securely sharing that PII with the user, correcting false information, and deleting non-essential PII. To reliably comply with CCPA, organizations require strong information governance to find, manage, and remediate PII across the enterprise.
