Is California going to start policing CCPA violations like the French police GDPR violations?

The California Privacy Protection Agency (CPPA) and France’s Commission Nationale de l’Informatique et des Libertés (CNIL) recently signed a declaration of cooperation allowing both authorities to collaborate on their efforts to safeguard personal information and advance privacy.

The declaration establishes a general framework of cooperation to facilitate joint internal research and education related to new technologies and data protection issues, share best practices and convene periodic meetings.

“Our Enforcement Division welcomes opportunities to learn from our international partners and share our US perspective, and we’re going to learn as much as we can from each other to advance our enforcement priorities,” Michael Macko, Deputy Director of Enforcement at the CPPA, said in a statement.
