GDPR vs CCPA: Two legislations, different requirements

W. Curtis Preston, Chief Technical Evangelist, Druva, discusses America’s version of GDPR, the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA), and what this means for the UK in particular.

While a piece of US-based legislation such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) may seem largely irrelevant to businesses based in the UK, it would be a mistake to ignore this impending legislation. Set to come into effect 1 January 2020, the CCPA will significantly improve the security and privacy of California residents and their personal information online.
