CCPA: Continuing to Make History
On Friday, October 11th, California's Governor signed 5 new amendments into the law that will go into effect January 1, 2020. With these amendments released so late in the year, businesses need to act immediately to ensure they won't kick off the New Year with CCPA penalties. The "Wait and See" approach for GDPR left several notable companies with huge fines. And CCPA has steep fines of its own.
Consider Facebook's Cambridge scandal. If Facebook had violated CCPA, it would've faced up to a $61.6 billion fine if the violation had been considered unintentional. What's worse is that it would've faced up to an $184.7 billion fine if the fines were considered intentional! (Facebook makes $55.8 billion a year, if that helps you do the math.)
But enough FUD, you're here because you're trying to be prepared. That's why we're hosting a webinar in November to review those pesky 5 amendments and help you make sure you're prepared for the law to go into effect. Jodi Daniels of Red Clover Advisors will discuss these new amendments and how they'll affect you in 2020.
