California takes privacy seriously. Laws like the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and amendments such as the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) establish strict requirements regarding how organizations collect, use and disclose personal information. They also grant consumers specific rights to access and control that information.
CCPA and CPRA for Organizations prepares employees for compliance by defining key terms such as “consumer,” “personal information” and “sensitive personal information,” and lays out best practices for the collection, use and processing of personal information. It provides guidance on selling and sharing personal information, as well as protecting it. Employees will also learn how to handle consumer rights requests, including access and deletion.
