California Consumer Privacy Act

Product Description

This course provides training for staff of companies that deal with personal data on Californian residents or that do business in California

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a law effective from 1 January 2020 that enhances consumer privacy rights. To comply with these new requirements, employees from any company that collects personal data from California residents, that does business in California, and that meets the revenue or data collection thresholds, must know how to act on their legal obligations.

Case studies appear throughout the lessons, helping to place the training into a vivid practical context. The course contains a fresh look and feel that is intended to maximize learners’ active engagement throughout the training, without distracting them from the key concepts.

This two-module course covers what the scope of the CCPA is, categories of personal data affected and your obligations in relation to the six consumer rights that underpin the legislation.

The training is suitable for staff at any level of an organization that comes in contact with private information or could be at risk of breaching California privacy laws.

It is designed to cater for a diverse audience and all levels of staff, addressing all of the legal content in plain language.


The training is enlivened by the use of scenarios throughout, that relate the material back to real-world situations that learners may face. The scenarios are supported by formative questions that provide guidance and feedback to learners.
