California Consumer Privacy Act

January 1, 2020: The countdown to compliance is on

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) will give consumers ownership, control, and security over their personal information. California citizens will have the right to know what data is being collected about them, who it is shared with, and how to request access to, deletion of, or exemption from the sale of their personal information. To get prepared for the compliance deadline, organizations should start understanding what data they have, where, and how it is being used.

4 strategies to prepare for CCPA compliance

Create a single source for all personal data

Identifying and classifying the organization’s personal data is essential for CCPA compliance. Understand who creates it, who owns it, who uses it, where it goes to, and how it’s used.

Embed compliant roles and responsibilities

Assign and maintain roles and responsibilities, supporting privacy by design, the data process activity register, and data security. Operationalize data breach reporting.

Ensure compliance as regulations evolve

Hold all regulatory and legislative rules, as well as policies, in one place. Track issues and compliance. Deliver regulatory change with confidence.

Data Privacy Regulation: Preparing for Change
