California Consumer Privacy Act: Paper Matters
The CCPA came into effect on January 1, 2020. Is your business ready?
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) builds on California’s existing “Shine the Light” law, which went into effect in 2005. It’s designed to protect consumers, giving them a clear view of who has access to their personal information and how that personal information is being used.
The CCPA applies to all private consumer data, regardless of format. Paper files and digital files fall equally under the purview of the CCPA.
The CCPA applies to businesses that:
• Collect, maintain or sell the personal data of California consumers
• Have annual gross revenues in excess of $25,000,000
• Sell the personal information of 50,000 or more consumers/households/devices
• Derive 50% of their annual revenues from selling personal information.

When it comes to compliance, information on paper is just as important as your digital data. Learn more about why paper security is so important.
