The California Consumer Privacy Act and the Security Industry

CCPA and the Security Industry report cover

In 2018, California lawmakers passed the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) to strengthen the state's constitutional guarantee of privacy. As stated in the legislative text, the bill, in general, is intended to ensure that Californians are able to know what personal information is collected about them, know whether their personal information is sold or disclosed and to whom, access their personal information, prohibit the sale of that information, request that a business delete their personal information and receive equal service and price, whether or not they exercise their privacy rights. The law went into effect on Jan. 1, 2020, but with the exception of the data breach provisions, it will not be enforced until July 1. The state attorney's general's office released draft implementing regulations in October 2019, with final rules to be completed during the first half of 2020. This Security Industry Association (SIA) paper provides SIA's analysis of the law, its provisions and reach and how it impacts the security industry.
