HOW TO PREPARE FOR CCPA COMPLIANCE
Whether you are a privacy professional or a technologist responsible for operationalizing compliance regulations, the fact is, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is going into effect January 1, 2020 and every impacted organization needs to prepare now. Failure to prepare puts companies at risk for serious financial, legal and reputational consequences.
The ability to have a holistic view of where your Personal Information (PI) and customer identities live in your ecosystem is easier than you think! Organizations can proactively monitor and set alerts to support data governance rules and regulations, deliver Data Subject Access Requests (DSARs), and follow-through on new rights requests, including the Right to Erasure. To be prepared, make sure you are asking the right questions along your data protection and compliance journey.
Key Considerations When Preparing for CCPA :
- Scan: Know which sensitive data elements/identities exist
- Scale: Plan ahead/scale to Petabytes of data
- Type: Sensitive data can be found in structured, unstructured, semi-structured formats
- Location: PI can be just about anywhere – on prem, cloud, SaaS
- Governance: Apply governance to remediate PI gaps, both inside and outside of the organization, and always consider new repositories
- Rights Requests: Ensure compliance on on the Right to Erasure when applicable
- Automate: Generate DSAR reports that can be delivered without unnecessary cycles
- Risk Controls: Ensure protection of sensitive data with masking/encryption
