Similar to the Massachusetts data breach notification law that went into effect in April, and GDPR before that, CCPA is the latest in a line of user data compliance regulations designed to better protect the data of consumers while they browse the internet. These laws are a direct response to the lack of progress at the federal level for appropriate consumer protections and should serve as a reminder for companies to conduct privacy audits and cross-checks…
