Key Things Every Brand Should Know About CCPA

In 2018, the enforcement of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) reshaped the data privacy landscape for businesses across Europe and worldwide. Beyond that, it has made consumer data privacy and security an essential topic for anyone who cares about customer engagement.

With the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) scheduled to begin enforcement on January 1, 2020, the privacy revolution kicked off by GDPR has made its way to the US.
