November 11, 2019 — In addition to the CA Attorney General prosecuting CCPA violations and issuing fines, the law enables consumers to bring private actions and class action suits; the legal fees and costs to defend CCPA violation suits should be incentive enough to ensure you’re compliant.

Businesses that properly prepared for GDPR still need to tweak a few things for CCPA compliance but it’s not the terrifying challenge the media is making it out to be.
