The California Consumer Privacy Act looms as the first general consumer privacy law that will affect US companies domestically. In the continued absence of any federal preemptive legislation, the CCPA will likely set the standards for the treatment of consumer information by private for-profit businesses. Many companies will be subject to the CCPA directly; others will need to understand its terms either because they provide services to businesses subject to the CCPA, or because the CCPA will set consumer expectations. In this course, you will learn about the types of businesses and information that are covered by the CCPA, the rights of consumers under CCPA, and the obligations imposed on businesses covered by the CCPA.
