Extract from Bobby Balachandran's article "CCPA...The Most Significant Impact on Litigation Since FRCP"
I have a simple question for all the GCs, CPOs, and CISOs out there: Are you ready for the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)? Because it’s coming, whether you’re ready or not, on January 1, 2020. (And ten other states will soon follow suit with similar, but different, regulations.)
Depending on the timing, polling group, and survey methodology, reports suggest somewhere between 45% and 86% of companies will not be ready or do not even plan to be ready by then.
If you ask me, those figures are probably optimistic. I suspect that most organizations who expect to be ready aren’t as close as they think. Why? Here’s my thought process.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.

I get bombarded with all kinds of e-discovery stuff – news, blogs and whatnot. Let me tell you, you guys send the absolute best! I send it to all my partners and sales folks. I said, who are these guys? I have to get to know them better!

As a trial lawyer, day-to-day information processing is daunting for my client service. I’ve come to rely on ACEDS to keep me on the ‘edge’ of the curve on e-discovery. It’s a source I ‘ping’ ASAP.
