CCPA dramatically increases the types of data that an organization must secure from historically sensitive data (financial accounts, social security numbers, credit cards, etc.) to any personally identifiable data including things as benign as web browsing history. While this act is similar to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), there are many differences in the scope of CCPA. For instance, CCPA covers medical data completely differently from GDPR.

Furthermore, the scope of CCPA is broad. It applies not only to California-based businesses but also to any company with data on California residents. CCPA also allows consumers to file a claim without proving actual damage from a data breach, which has historically been hard to prove in data breach lawsuits.

This Forrester report outlines the main steps companies must take today to kick off their preparation for CCPA. Click here to download the free report.
