Proposed Regulations under the California Consumer Privacy Act: A Step in the Right Direction but Far from the Destination
By Cameron Abbott and Max Evans
We recently blogged about the intention of Californian lawmakers to enact stringent privacy regulations through the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). In particular, we noted the useful guidance provided by our colleagues over at The Privacist on the impact of potential contingencies for organisations.
On a different note, our colleagues over at the Consumer Financial Services Watch have provided a comprehensive critique of the proposed regulations, indicating that whilst they appear to be a step in the right direction in providing clarity on the form and content of notices and disclosures, they fail to address a number of interpretive issues with which businesses are struggling. We encourage you to have a read.
