The California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA), which passed in November 2020, is a comprehensive privacy law that provides significant protections to people who live in California. If your company has more than $25 million in annual revenues and handles the data of California residents, the CPRA will apply to you, regardless of where you’re located. That makes it critical to start getting legal advice and planning your compliance strategy now.
When the CPRA goes into effect on January 1, 2023, it will replace the state’s already significant protections under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). If you’re already complying with the existing regulations, you’ve already got a head start on adapting to the new ones – but the CPRA also substantially expands them. We like this article’s clear overview of what the CPRA includes and why it matters, not just in California but across the US and, indeed, the whole world.
