–News Direct–

As the world increasingly becomes increasingly more digitalized, laws around privacy are taking center stage. Governments and their people are starting to ask the complex question of what the standard of privacy is in our digital world. Data privacy regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in Europe and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), are examples of recent policy measures that aim to protect individuals' data rights and enforce control measures on businesses that handle personal data.

The GDPR, which came into effect in 2018, applies to all companies processing the personal data of European Union (EU) citizens, irrespective of the company's location. It establishes rules for data collection, processing and storage, and gives individuals the right to access, rectify or erase their personal data. The GDPR also imposes hefty fines for non-compliance, emphasizing the need for businesses to prioritize data privacy.

Similarly, the CCPA, enacted in 2020, focuses on protecting the privacy rights of California residents. It grants consumers greater control over their personal information, allowing them to request access to their data, opt out of its sale and demand its deletion. The CCPA applies to businesses that exceed certain thresholds related to revenue or the amount of consumer data processed. Non-compliance with the CCPA can result in substantial financial penalties, making it crucial for businesses operating within California to implement adequate data privacy measures.

While these are two examples of laws that have recently come to fruition, governments are constantly looking at new bills and laws to regulate the digital world. Whether youre working for a corporation, running a business or non-profit or are just a concerned citizen, being in the know about how lawmakers are shaping the future of privacy is an important part of both civic engagement and business management.
