California Consumer Privacy Act to Go Into Effect January 1, 2020

On January 1, 2020, the California Consumer Privacy Act (the “CCPA”) will go into effect as previously reported.  The law will largely set the standard for data privacy in the United States as it will apply not just to California businesses over certain thresholds but to all businesses that do business in California, including internet businesses that deal with California customers.  The law anticipates the adoption of regulations that have not yet been finalized and therefore enforcement actions are delayed until at least July 1, 2020.
