The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)’s first enforcement action is further proof that the need to prioritize security and privacy is critical – and becoming more so every day. When faced with business priorities like mounting compliance requirements, many companies are doing the bare minimum—relying on checkbox-style security and privacy, a wing, and a prayer.
This approach just isn’t going to cut it anymore.
Some best practices that will help your company demonstrate and maintain CCPA compliance, protect you from lawsuits and data breaches, and strengthen your overall security posture include:
✅ Review Your Data Security Procedures and Practices
✅ Provide Staff Training for Handling Personal Information
✅ Assist Consumers with Exercising Their Rights Under the CCPA
✅ Implement a Process to Comply With the Look-Back Requirement
✅ Update Your Website
