California Love for Data Privacy

In this episode, CSS’s Director of Cyber IT Services E.J Yerzak speaks with Chair of the Privacy & Cybersecurity Practice at Mintz Cynthia Larose to continue Cybersecurity Awareness Month. The California Consumer Privacy Act or CCPA is the first law in the US to set up a comprehensive set of rules around consumer data, akin to the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR. Since going into effect January 1, 2020, industry and privacy advocates have been battling over the fine print. Is it just another compliance requirement or is it going to drive real change towards greater protection of consumer’s privacy and data?
