Training course outline

The CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act) is a new California data protection law that came into effect on January 1, 2020. CCPA is widely viewed as California’s version of the EU’s GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).

Just like the GDPR, it gives people more control over their personal data, and holds businesses more accountable for protecting the data they collect and process.

Once you have completed the California Consumer Privacy Act Foundation Online Training course, you will be able to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of privacy and cybersecurity law concepts, and basis of national/state jurisdiction 
  • Define terms used in the CCPA and contrast to the GDPR 
  • Articulate the rights of consumers, and determine the duties of a business 
  • Examine the CCPA’s security requirements and prepare relevant responses 
  • Use the CCPA to determine what action(s) should be taken in the event of a breach 
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the CCPA’s penalty provisions
