July 1 is Still the Starting Date for CCPA Enforcement, According to the California AG: Data Privacy Trends

As part of the Educational partnership between Ipro and eDiscovery Today that was announced earlier this month, I’m excited to say that I will be writing a new weekly blog post for Ipro’s blog, to supplement the excellent educational content that Jim Gill and the Ipro team regularly provide!  Just like I do on eDiscovery Today, I will write educational posts about a variety of topics related to eDiscovery, cybersecurity and data privacy.

Today’s post is about the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).  On June 1, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra submitted proposed regulations under the CCPA to the California Office of Administrative Law (OAL), according to a news release from the Office of the Attorney General of California (OAG).  OAL has 30 working days and an additional 60 calendar days under Executive Order N-40-20 related to the COVID-19 pandemic, to review the package for procedural compliance with the Administrative Procedure Act.  However, Becerra requested OAL to conduct an expedited review and declined to delay enforcement of CCPA from the original planned date of July 1st, but indicated he would exercise “prosecutorial discretion if warranted”.

You can read more about it on Ipro’s blog here.  Don’t worry, it’s just one extra click!  And, of course, I’ll still be continuing to write plenty of posts on eDiscovery Today as well!

So, what do you think?  Is your organization compliant with CCPA?   Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
