Does the CCPA require a data protection officer?

No, the CCPA does not require a data protection officer (DPO). A DPO is an individual hired by a company to ensure its data privacy practices meet the requirements of the GDPR. Therefore, you only need to appoint a DPO if you’re subject to comply with the GDPR.
