The CCPA applies to all organizations operating in California or those processing “personal identifiable data” of California consumers. Personal data is any information that is personally identifiable of a living individual, such as a name, an identification number, location data, or an online identifier. A more complete definition can be found here.

What this means is, if your business is based in California, or processes the data of California consumers, you need to do everything you can to comply with CCPA. Businesses need to demonstrate the security of the data they are processing and their compliance with CCPA on a continual basis.

Here is some information about how Crunchbase has prepared for CCPA compliance.
