California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) Foundation Self-Paced Online Training Course

Training course outline

The CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act) is a California data protection law that came into effect on January 1, 2020. Following the passing of Prop 24, the CPRA (California Privacy Rights Act) will take effect officially on January 1, 2023 and replace the CCPA. The CPRA is widely viewed as California’s version of the EU’s GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).

Just like the GDPR, it gives people more control over their personal data, and holds businesses more accountable for protecting the data they collect and process.
