On August 17, 2020, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced the finalization of the CCPA regulations, bringing an almost year-long process of refinement to an end. Here’s what was in the last round of clarifications to the law.
On August 17, 2020, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced the finalization of the CCPA regulations, bringing an almost year-long process of refinement to an end. We’ve covered some of the previous rounds of updates to the CCPA elsewhere, but given that this marks the end of long rounds of CCPA wordsmithing, we thought the August 17 clarifications deserved a standalone post.
The key areas that were refined or clarified in this latest and final round were:
The final round of CCPA clarifications skews business-friendly. Some of the more onerous requirements around the Do Not Sell requirement were eased or alleviated. With that said, it’s notable that businesses may now need to do more legwork when scoping their dealings with authorized agents purporting to represent California consumers. Perhaps the highest-level takeaway is that the CCPA text is actually finalized – at least until California returns to the ballot box on November 4, 2020 to vote on “CCPA 2.0”, The California Privacy Rights Act.

Ethyca hosted its second P.x session with the Fides Slack Community earlier this week. Our Senior Software Engineer Thomas La Piana gave a live walkthrough of the open-source privacy engineering platform, Fides 2.0. He demonstrated how users can easily deploy Fides and go from 0 to full DSR automation in less than 15 minutes. If you weren’t able to attend, here are the three main points addressed during the session.
Introducing consent management in Fides 2.0. With the coming state privacy laws in 2023, your business needs to have granular control over users’ data and their consent preferences. Learn more about how Fides can enable this for your business, for free.
Ethyca launched its privacy engineering meetup, P.x, where Fides Slack Community members met and interacted with the Fides developer team. Two of our Senior Software Engineers, Dawn and Steve, gave presentations and demos on the importance of data minimization, and how Fides can make data minimization easier for teams. Here, we’ll recap the three main points of discussion.
We enjoyed two great days of security and privacy talks at this year’s Symposium on Usable Privacy and Security, aka SOUPS Conference! Presenters from all over the world spoke both in-person and virtually on the latest findings in privacy and security research.
At Ethyca, we believe that software engineers are becoming major privacy stakeholders, but do they feel the same way? To answer this question, we went out and asked 337 software engineers what they think about the state of contemporary privacy… and how they would improve it.
The UK’s new Data Reform Bill is set to ease data privacy compliance burdens on businesses to enable convenience and spark innovation in the country. We explain why convenience should not be the end result of a country’s privacy legislation.
Our team of data privacy devotees would love to show you how Ethyca helps engineers deploy CCPA, GDPR, and LGPD privacy compliance deep into business systems. Let’s chat!Get a Demo
