by Garlie, Michael, M.S., Utica College, 2020, 58; 27963326
Abstract (Summary)

The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) is one of the most robust privacy regulations in the world. While this new law is a groundbreaking attempt to protect personal information, there are significant challenges that organizations will have to overcome to meet its compliance milestones. The purpose of this study was to examine the CCPA and make recommendations to privacy professionals in corporations to attain compliance efficiently, protect their customer’s private information, and justify the substantial expense of compliance. The research explored historical privacy events in the United States, the effects of artificial intelligence on privacy, and if CCPA’s ramifications will justify the expenses necessary for compliance.

The research found significant historical events that led to American privacy values that are now protected in the CCPA. Artificial intelligence has both positive and negative effects on privacy compliance. The ramifications of the CCPA should motivate organizations to provide adequate security for their customer’s personal information. The research recommends closely monitoring lawsuits related to CCPA to gauge their privacy and security risk tolerances.
