CCPA and ‘Reasonable Security’: A Game Changer

  • CCPA provides that consumers may seek statutory damages of between $100 and $750, or actual damages if greater, against a company in the event of a data breach of non-redacted and non-encrypted personal information that results from the company’s failure to implement reasonable security.
  • To mitigate the risk of this increased exposure, companies need to take key steps to ensure they have implemented reasonable security procedures and practices.
  • The CCPA does not define “reasonable security.”
