Over the past year, leaps and bounds have been made to change the way that personal data is collected and protected at the hands of online businesses. Two of the biggest players in the digital privacy game are the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the US-based California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).
While the GDPR set the precedent for the new data privacy standards, the CCPA drew inspiration from the EU regulation, bringing modern data protection rules to the US. If you do business online, there’s a high likelihood that you’re subject to comply with one — if not both — of these laws.
