6 Steps: Getting Ready for CCPA

White Papers > 6 Steps: Getting Ready for CCPA

Within the past few years, there has been growing concern about the need to manage and protect an individual’s personal data.

While dozens of countries have enacted some sort of law intended to protect individuals’ personal data, as of yet there are no United States federal laws on the books. That being said, states such as California are enacting legislation for data protection, and the California Consumer Protection Act of 2018 (CCPA), which goes into effect on Jan. 1, 2020, is one of the first, but certainly not the last. 

The CCPA specifies steep penalties for unauthorized exposure of personal information. Intentional violations of the CCPA are fined at $7,500 per capita, while those lacking intent are subject to a maximum of $2,500 per violation. However, realize that violations are likely to be associated with selling large numbers of protected records, or mass exposure due to security breaches.

Here Io-Tahoe presents some suggestions for ensuring that your organization is prepared for implementing auditable and reportable compliance with the CCPA. Raising awareness of some of the complexities of compliance will help socialize strategic approaches to reinforcing the enterprise infrastructure and prepare for the coming deluge of privacy regulations as other countries and US states fall into line.
