Those privacy professionals following the California Consumer Privacy Act (also known as the CCPA) have been eagerly awaiting final regulations from the California Attorney General (CA AG). Unfortunately, we will have to wait a little longer. On February 10, 2020, the CA AG published the Revised Proposed Regulations. This means that the California public will have another opportunity to submit their comments on the CCPA regulations before the CA AG makes additional revisions. The deadline to submit written comments is February 25, 2020. From there, the CA AG has until July 1, 2020 to finalize the regulations.
As we ring in the New Year, privacy professionals are collectively holding their breath: January 1, 2020 marked the effective date of the California Consumer Privacy Act, also known as the CCPA.

The versions of best practices continue to multiply and the layers of regulation continue to expand. Every new group or political entity wants to out-perform the last – but has this one-upmanship gone too far?
All eyes are on California as the countdown to California’s Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) continues. This attention is for good reason—the CCPA is a data privacy law with the potential to change the landscape of data collection practices in the U.S. Approximately 500,000 U.S. businesses in various industries will have to comply with this new law when it goes into effect on January 1, 2020.

KMK Law recently hosted its Third Annual Cybersecurity & Privacy Seminar. This seminar was developed for business owners of various sizes and for those in senior positions in Information Governance, Compliance/Risk Management, Human Resources, Legal and/or Information Technology.
On November 2, 2018 Ohio’s new Data Protection Act went into effect. The Ohio DPA creates a new statutory affirmative defense against data breach tort claims and identifies specific cybersecurity frameworks that are now presumptively reasonable. KMK Law and Gratia, Inc. partnered together to discuss the impact of Ohio DPA on businesses, the steps companies need to take as a result, and what this “safe harbor” really means.
Ohio recently enacted the Ohio Data Protection Act which was part of Attorney General DeWine’s CyberOhio Initiative. The Act will go into effect on November 2, 2018. Every Ohio business should be familiar with the Ohio DPA and determine whether they can or want to qualify for the benefits. The Ohio DPA also provides another reminder of the importance of examining and evaluating your data protection and written information governance policies.
September 2018 was a busy month for data privacy. We expect the next several months to be extremely active as well, especially with the number of new complaints and data breach notices filed in Europe since May. We will continue to monitor and update developments as the data privacy framework continues to evolve.
