The rapid acceleration of technology over the past few decades has undoubtedly raised real concern around the privacy and security of the consumer. With identity theft, data breaches and related privacy incidents running rife, the need for compliance and governance for the protection of personal data has become of paramount importance. Legislations such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), which affects all companies that conduct business in California, has been enacted with a single goal in mind - to protect the consumer and provide them with a new set of rights.

Over the past few decades, data privacy regulations around the world have been enacted, reviewed and implemented in order to provide the most comprehensive personal protection for consumers.

Compliance with privacy regulations such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are more than just an organisational requirement. Implementing best practices for these regulations will not only ensure that heavy fines are avoided, but can contribute to a company’s success by creating a positive reputation of a company that cares for people and respects consumer rights.

To facilitate organisations in applying and differentiating between privacy regulations, Alyne has put together a white paper that will discuss the requirements of the newly enacted CCPA with a comparison between its ‘sister’ law, GDPR. In this white paper, we will look into examples for management of these regulations, such as registering risks and setting up mitigation tasks to remain compliant.
