CYBERSECURITY DICTIONARY

CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act)

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a law aimed at enhancing online privacy and consumer protection for California residents. Signed into law in 2018, CCPA is effective as of January 1, 2020. The CCPA seeks to assure Californians the right to know what personally identifiable information (PII) is being collected, to know whether the data is sold or disclosed and to whom, to control/prevent sale or disclosure of the PII and to request deletion of PII by a business.

The CCPA’s scope is limited to businesses with: a) annual gross revenues in excess of $25 million; b) possessing PII on 50,000 or more consumers, households or devices; or c) earning more than half their revenue from the sale of PII.
