Consequently, the citizens suffer and pay the price of breaching. Various countries have adopted personal data protection laws in line with General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). The California State has also made legislation to secure consumer rights in respect of personal data. This study made a comparison between General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). After study, it has been identified that GDPR is a comprehensive document which can be used for providing security of personal data around the world. It has all the relevant clauses/ Articles that can be used accordingly. Furthermore, being dynamic in nature it has the capability to become adoptable to new changes/ technologies.
