CCPA data visibility requirements

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), passed in 2018 and effective as of January 1, 2020, requires your organization to have visibility into what data you possess and where it is located. CCPA enhances consumer protection and privacy for California residents and requires businesses and related entities to report data breaches of personal information. Your organization will also need to be able to take certain actions with this data. Titus wins gold five times in the 2020 Cyber Security Excellence Awards!

What does the CCPA do?

The main goal of the CCPA is to improve the security and protection of an individual’s personal information. The CCPA offers consumers:


California residents have the right to know what has been collected about them or their children, including any activity or data gleaned from their devices, and they have the right to tell businesses not to share or sell that information.

Once a year, businesses are required to inform people of what categories of information they have collected about them, their devices or their children. If that information is sold, they also have to let people know what categories of information were sold and to whom.


California residents have the right to control what personal information is collected.

Consumers can have their personal information deleted from a business’ servers under specific circumstances. If a consumer tells a business not to share or sell their private information, the business cannot charge more or deny access to services. Businesses must prominently display a “Do not sell my data” link where consumers can opt out.


Businesses are required to implement “reasonable security measures” to protect the personal information of California residents. If a breach does occur, businesses must file a report immediately. Businesses that do not adequately secure personal information will be subject to stiff fines and other penalties.

The CCPA applies to any organization worldwide doing business in California and exceeding annual gross revenues of $25 million, holding personal information of 50,000 or more California residents, or receiving 50% or more annual revenues from selling California residents’ personal information.
