With the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) officially launching January 1, 2020, many organizations are still playing catch- up in determining exactly how they’ll comply with major provisions before full enforcement begins July 1, 2020.

So far, the biggest risks stemming from the CCPA have touched on a few major areas: the ability to respond to consumer requests for data, breaches of personal data andthe resulting fines, and maintaining proper preservation of data needed for civil or criminal litigation. Below, we’ll take a look at each of these commonly made mistakes that companies are making, and offer a roadmap to CCPA compliance. Most of the mistakes that businesses and individuals are currently making regarding their compliance efforts fall into one of the following three categories:

  • Failure to harmonize the DSAR process with litigation requirements
  • Forgetting to include paper records in the DSAR process
  • Over-retaining data, which heightens the potential impact of data breaches

In this guide, we’ll look into each of those obstacles and offer defensible practices to avoid adverse legal and financial consequences.
