In a world where information is the most valuable resource, it makes sense for new regulations to be enforced to protect consumer data. Consumers are becoming more aware of data collection and how it impacts them with media outlets reporting more data abuse reports than ever before. With this in mind, international enforcement laws encourage data privacy and consent protections for users.
The EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation, effective May 25, 2018) and the CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act, effective January 1, 2020) are two such laws. These are two of the first regulations that impact on a widespread scale directly on data collection, usage, and processing.
Understanding the impact of GDPR and CCPA legislation is critical today— and in the future— to global enforcement. In addition, these regulations foreshadow a certain trend towards data collection and management: more governing bodies will enforce legislation on privacy and consent with a greater impact on non-compliance. Here is an explanation of GDPR vs. CCPA to help you understand how these regulations can affect you.
