The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is the State of California’s new data privacy law imposing significant obligations on companies with respect to the personal information of California residents.

The CCPA took effect on January 1, 2020, with enforcement beginning on July 1, 2020. Enforcement is expected to be vigorous, with the California Attorney General making several public statements that his office will actively enforce the law. In addition, civil litigants have already filed class actions seeking statutory damages under the CCPA for security breaches.

Our CCPA Toolkit explains the law’s requirements, can help you make an initial assessment as to whether your company is affected by the CCPA, and lays out eight steps you can take to comply with the CCPA. We have also released a CCPA Case Tracker to help you stay abreast of litigation and regulatory developments.

O’Melveny’s Data Security and Privacy lawyers advise companies on CCPA compliance, including counseling on the application of the law to your company, developing compliance plans, policies and procedures, negotiating data transfer and service provider agreements, and conducting CCPA-related diligence for M&A transactions. In addition, our team of former government officials and privacy class action specialists help clients navigate government inquiries and CCPA-related civil litigation.
