California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) was enacted into law on June 28, 2018. The CCPA seeks to ensure California consumers have a certain level of privacy rights. Proofpoint is committed to complying with applicable regulations such as data privacy laws, including California’s CCPA (effective January 2020). As a provider of cybersecurity software, we carefully study and monitor these regulatory requirements to determine how our services can assist our customers with their data privacy/security compliance efforts.  The CCPA provides a right for individuals to sue businesses that do not implement and maintain reasonable data security measures.  Proofpoint’s product offerings help enterprises secure data such as corporate email and social media accounts, which include personal information as defined by CCPA. These regulations were recently enacted and continue to evolve. Proofpoint continually monitors updates to the regulations and guidance provided by the regulatory authorities and considers such changes to our internal policies and procedures and our products when appropriate.
