How Search Discovery Helps with CCPA Compliance
Ensure You’re Within CCPA Compliance
The law and its regulations are long and complex, but have some key items to be aware of:
- California Residents have the right to access their data, correct their data, delete their data, transfer their data, and opt-out of the sale or sharing of their data.
- Businesses covered under the law must honor the ability of residents to exercise their rights within a specified time frame and provide proper notices to consumers in key areas as defined by the law.
- Businesses are subject to key documentation requirements, including required training, risk assessments, cybersecurity evaluations, and in some cases, transparency disclosures.

What Kind of CCPA Penalties Could I Get?
The law and the related regulations are presently enforced by the California Attorney General.

Regardless of the enforcement body, fines for the CCPA can be up to $7,500 per violation, and settlements may include multi-year compliance orders.
As of January 1, 2023, California will no longer issue Cure Notices, placing businesses at increased risk of legal action.
