CCPA Risk-Based “Reasonable Security Measures”

California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)

Our assessment and guidance is tailored specifically to your organization’s operations and supporting information technology infrastructure. Leveraging our 15+ years designing, developing, and implementing cost-beneficial risk-based “reasonable security solutions” for HIPAA privacy and security regulatory compliance. We provide a comprehensive market-tested business strategic approach to CCPA compliance

What are the CCPA penalty thresholds?

If “nonencrypted or nonredacted” California consumer information is compromised through a breach or some other unauthorized disclosure resulting from a failure of reasonable security, consumers may bring a legal action for statutory damages ranging from $100 to $750 per violation or actual damages, whichever is greater.

All other CCPA penalties are driven by the California Attorney General’s (“AG”) office. While the AG may also target the reasonability of a company’s security measures, it is responsible for pursuing statutory penalties across the entirety of the CCPA. Those penalties can reach $7,500 per violation.
