On June 28, 2018 the California Legislature passed the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA” or the “Act”). This sweeping legislation creates significant new requirements for identifying, managing, securing, tracking, producing and deleting consumer privacy information. This Quick Overview presents key steps toward complying with CCPA. For further developments, please check out the ACC Guide on Operationalizing the California Consumer Privacy Act (2019).

This is particularly true for privacy as these projects can involve a multitude of policies, processes, technology and training often involving multiple groups addressing different types of media. When facing a tight timeframe, defining upfront what you want to do when, and how much makes these tasks easier.
