As a result of these breaches and the perceived general mismanagement of personal information, some governments have been working to improve the regulatory landscape regarding the privacy of personal data. In May of 2018, GDPR took effect in the EU. Most vendors of identity and security technologies worked diligently to ensure that their products and services could help their customers meet GDPR objectives. Many consumer-facing companies in the EU have made significant changes to the way they do business, particularly with how they collect information (with user consent) and how they use it. Now that GDPR is in place and complaints have been filed, the world waits to see the outcome. In the US, California made similar moves to protect the data privacy of their citizens with the CCPA, signed in 2018 and will take effect in 2020. The preparations that companies and organizations made for GDPR can provide some lessons learned for others in advance of CCPA.
