The California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) takes effect on January 1st, 2023. Unlike other regulations, under CPRA, organizations are no longer left with a rectification period to fix non-compliance. While the bill was passed on November 3rd, 2020, numerous drafts have been submitted, leaving confusion in interpretation for organizations.
With California touted to be the fourth largest economy in the world, you cannot risk non-compliance and impact brand trust. Organizations are left with little time to fast-track compliance.
Key takeaways include:
What to expect with CPRA
The role of the California Privacy Protection Agency
How to best prepare for CPRA compliance
The purpose and intent of the people
of the State of California is “to
further protect consumers’ rights,
including the constitutional right of
privacy. Unlike GDPR, the CPRA
is aimed at for-profit businesses in California only meant to regulate
data collection, storage, processing,
sale, and sharing practices.”
“Using the suite of TrustArc tools is incredibly important to us to document and track compliance with our global privacy program.”

You are not alone
The road to understanding the increased consumer rights and new mandates for enterprises in California under CPRA doesn’t have to be daunting. A new category of Sensitive Personal Information, no cure period, an independent enforcement authority, and how these impact your organization are a few among many provisions organizations should start preparing for compliance.
