It’s Friday the 13th! So, What’s Worse – Jason or Last Minute Votes on CCPA Amendments?: Data Privacy Trends

OK, today is the day that spawned a whole series of horror movies that have been a part of the Hollywood lexicon for nearly forty years now.  But the decisions being made in California this week could impact data privacy considerations for…well, who knows how long?  So, which is worse?  Depends on your point of view, I guess.

You all know the legacy of all the Friday the 13th movies, starting with this one way back in 1980 (still a classic!).  Yes, it even had Kevin Bacon in it, which should appease all you “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon” fans.  Thank you, sir, may I have another?  ;o)

No, you may not, because this post is about data privacy and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).  According to this article from Alysa Zeltzer Hutnik & Alex Schneider at Kelley Drye, apparently this week marks the final opportunity for California lawmakers to amend the CCPA before the legislative session closes.

And, they have been busy with changes, according to this article from yesterday from Andrew Kingman and Jim Halpert (no, not THAT Jim Halpert) from the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) where we learned that the proposed amendment to support loyalty programs (to permit the sale of personal information collected through loyalty programs in very limited circumstances) has been shelved for the year.

Speaking of IAPP, they have a great infographic here (and below) that shows the status of privacy laws in various states.  You know I love an infographic!

Not enough detail for you?  They also have this more detailed table with references to each statute or bill currently making its way through the legislative process.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words and I’ve given you at least two of them, so I’ve earned a few days off, I’d say.  I’ll settle for two.  Back Monday!

So, what do you think?  Are you concerned about last minute changes to CCPA?  Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
