Most of us heard about GDPR and CCPA. As a software house, we know that having a solution that covers all requirements of these new regulations, doesn’t mean it cannot be easy to use. We have created a plugin where with just a couple of clicks, you will make your website ready.
In short, what is it – GDPR and CCPA?
The General Data Protection Regulation standardizes data protection law across all twenty-eight EU countries and imposes strict new rules on controlling and processing identifiable information. All websites collecting data from EU citizens must meet these GDPR requirements. Failure to comply can result in fines up to €20 million or 4% global turnover, or compensation claims for damages incurred. You may also face damage to your reputation and lose the trust of customers. So, if your website is frequented by visitors in the European Union, it pays to be prepared.
What about CCPA?
CCPA is a set of privacy and personal data protection laws implemented by the State of California. CCPA stands for the California Consumer Privacy Act, and it will improve privacy and transparency to help protect consumer interests.
The law was a direct response to the misappropriation of Facebook data by Cambridge Analytica. At least 87 million people were affected by that privacy breach and it showed governments that something had to be done to protect the interests of consumers.
The act was written and passed quickly so there are still some kinks and loopholes that companies might potentially exploit. However, CCPA is a step in the right direction and will evolve with time to become a comprehensive law. The government will continue to refine the act and its policies until it is implemented to ensure the act provides maximum protection.
The CCPA focuses primarily on the privacy and data collection aspect. The act is similar to GDPR in most respects so people who have implemented GDPR will have an easier time adapting to it. There are still some key differences between both policies so it is important to study CCPA carefully and fulfill its requirements even if you have completed the entire GDPR process.
