Enhancing CCPA Compliance Through Human Risk Management with Keepnet Labs

Introduction

Understanding and adhering to privacy regulations such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) can be a daunting task for businesses. The CCPA is a groundbreaking law that empowers Californian consumers by granting them greater autonomy over their personal information. While the law is clear on the need for compliance, the practicalities of achieving this can often seem unclear, particularly in the realms of data protection and employee training on cybersecurity risks.

This document will cut through the complexity and demystify the process of CCPA compliance, focusing on the specific circumstances that mandate adherence to the law, and illustrating how cybersecurity solutions, such as those offered by Keepnet Labs, can play a pivotal role in maintaining compliance. We will probe the challenges businesses face when managing personal information, contemplate how they can effectively upskill their employees in safe data handling practices, and identify robust solutions for bolstering company data security measures. By offering a clear guide to navigating the intricacies of CCPA compliance, this article will also showcase how Keepnet Labs' suite of tools can assist businesses in meeting these stringent requirements.

Understanding the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA):

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) gives consumers more control over the personal information that businesses collect about them, and the CCPA regulations provide guidance on how to implement the law. This law secures new privacy rights for California consumers, including:

● The right to know about the personal information a business collects about them and how it is used and shared;

● The right to delete personal information collected from them (with some exceptions);

● The right to opt-out of the sale or sharing of their personal information; and

● The right to correct inaccurate personal information that a business has about them; and

● The right to limit the use and disclosure of sensitive personal information collected about them.

Businesses that are subject to the CCPA have several responsibilities, including training their employees and executives on the importance of Cyber Security and the risks associated with handling personal information.

Does CCPA apply to your business?

The CCPA applies to businesses that do business in California and meet any of the following:

○ Have a gross annual revenue of over $25 million;

○ Buy, sell, or share the personal information of 100,000 or more California residents, households, or devices; or

○ Derive 50% or more of their annual revenue from selling California residents’ personal information

Staying Compliant with the California Consumer Privacy Act

In light of current regulations, any lack of attention towards safeguarding customer data could place your organization in jeopardy. The California Attorney General possesses the authority to mandate digital hygiene guidelines. In instances where an organization's security practices are found insufficient relative to the data they manage, they could be held accountable. Article 1798.100 section (e) of the California Consumer Privacy Act clearly states that any business collecting a consumer's personal information must implement reasonable security procedures and practices. These must be commensurate with the nature of the personal information, to protect against unauthorized or illegal access, destruction, use, modification, or disclosure as stated in Section 1798.81.5.

How Keepnet Labs helps you stay CCPA compliant

Recognizing that more than 90% of data breaches occur due to human error, it is of paramount importance to develop an astute and cautious workforce. Keepnet Labs maintains this focus, endorsing an infrastructural blend of efficient security measures and continuous awareness training. Such an approach allows organizations to significantly diminish the probability of security breaches. This dual-pronged methodology transcends traditional threat prevention; instead, it invites employees to engage actively in an organization's security protocol. In doing so, employees evolve from potential weak links into invaluable assets in the battle against cyber threats, thereby shifting the security paradigm from a passive to a proactive posture.
