Justin Yedor in a
Nov. 4, 2020, story about the new privacy enforcement agency established under California
The California Privacy Protection Agency is the first of its kind tasked
solely with enforcing privacy laws under the 2018 California Consumer
Privacy Act. The agency will begin regulating companies on Jan. 1, 2023.
Seventeen states have deliberated similar privacy measures, but it is
unknown how quickly they may follow California’s lead.
“California is already pretty far out ahead,” Yedor said of the state’s
advanced privacy model. “Most states don’t even have the laws that would
apply, let alone a regulator solely devoted to enforcing those laws.”
