Lockpath for CCPA Compliance

Challenges managing CCPA compliance

Organizations are uncertain how to comply with California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), which takes effect Jan 1. 2020. While it may feel like you have plenty of time, the effective date will be here before you know it and it doesn’t help there is also uncertainty around enforcement of the penalties. As such, the pressure is on to find a way forward with CCPA compliance that can fit with the organization’s current compliance efforts.

Common challenges with CCPA compliance include:

  • Changing customer data management processes.
    Changing internal processes or misinterpreting CCPA requirements may well interrupt or slow down compliance efforts.
  • Getting the right technology.
    Integrating the customer database with technology for data processing is frequently time-consuming and disruptive to operations.
  • Assessing data stored off-site.
    Tracking down off-site data or data managed by third parties can make it a struggle to identify and integrate data with CCPA-compliant processes.
  • Managing multiple channels.
    Consumers have multiple channels to express their rights, which creates a dual challenge: delivering on customer requests and complying with CCPA.
  • Ensuring other priorities after breaches.
    Being pulled in different directions with different priorities after a breach can be stressful and unproductive.
