The more regulatory requirements are enacted, the busier lawyers are counseling clients toward compliance. However, law firms aren’t immune from the massive data privacy laws themselves, especially the relatively new California Consumer Protection Act.
The CCPA applies to businesses operating California that either have annual revenue surpassing $25,000,000; sell, processes or hold the personal information of 50,000 Californians; or earn half of their revenue is from selling Californians’ personal information.
Law firms that fall under the CCPA’s scope have a variety of obligations, including updating their website’s privacy notices, implementing “reasonable” cybersecurity and being aware of the exemptions unique to legal services.
Below, lawyers provide their top CCPA compliance tips for law firms.
