The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) offers wide protection for the personal information of California residents, including rights to be informed of business privacy practices, to access, to delete personal information, and to deny third parties’ use of personal information. Compliance violations are punishable by fines of up to $7,500 per record plus the potential for class-action litigation.
Organizations conducting business in California collecting personal information must:
- publish their privacy practices,
- disclose to consumers what personal information has been collected in the preceding 12 months,
- honor requests for deletion,
- and enable consumers to direct third parties not to use their personal information.
Spirion advances compliance with the CCPA by:
- precisely locating personal information wherever it resides across the enterprise
- providing data classification capabilities that offer complete protection for data at rest,
- including options for data encryption, deletion, or quarantine
- offering a management dashboard that provides insightful reports on the state of the business’s data protection program.
