Data Governance Strategies for Addressing California Consumer Privacy Act Requirements

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) introduces compliance challenges requiring new data governance strategies

January 1, 2020, marks the start of not only a new decade, but also a new set of data governance challenges that will impact companies around the world. The California Consumer Privacy Act, or CCPA, which goes into effect on the first of the new year, imposes significant additional requirements to the ways in which companies manage data related to the consumers with whom they interact.

Although the CCPA is broadly similar in many respects to previous compliance frameworks such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), it creates some unique challenges that will require many companies to adapt their data governance and data privacy strategies.

And because the CCPA impacts not just companies based in California, but those that interact in any way with consumers who reside in the state, it has implications for organizations across the United States and beyond.

For these reasons, now is the time to begin planning for CCPA compliance, if your company has not already. To help with the process, Syncsort has prepared this white paper, which summarizes the CCPA’s key data privacy requirements and explains how they compare to the mandates of the GDPR.

While the following pages do not address CCPA compliance strategies in exhaustive detail, they offer a concise overview of the key data governance practices that enable companies to successfully adapt to CCPA requirements — as well as those of similar compliance frameworks that are likely to be passed in coming years by other U.S. state governments.

Designed to strengthen data privacy protections for consumers, the CCPA was passed by the California state legislature in June 2018, and its requirements go into effect on January 1, 2020.

Read this eBook now to learn why it’s crucial for organizations to adopt the solutions they need to find, connect, monitor and govern the many types of data that CCPA protects.
