California appoints board of its privacy protection agency

California officials announced the establishment of the board for the California Privacy Protection Agency (CPPA). CPPA is a newly created agency in charge of protecting the fundamental privacy rights of consumers over their personal information. The CPPA Board consists of five experts in privacy, technology, and consumer rights and as a first task it needs to get the agency up and running by appointing an executive director and staff. CPPA rulings on California Privacy Rights Act are to begin this summer.
