In part 1 of this interview, Hayley Tsukayama walked us through the details of the new California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). In part 2, we discuss how this law will affect many of us who are not California residents and how it’s influencing potential legislation in other states and even at the federal level. We also discuss how CCPA can synergize with other state laws and be used as a tool for journalists to expose data brokers to the light of scrutiny.
