Your Challenge

  • Constant changes and amendments to the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) make it unclear what needs to implemented.
  • Organizations are unclear on how to operationalize the anticipated increase in data requests from customers or consumers.

Our Advice

Critical Insight

  • Subject Access Requests are the most critical element of CCPA.
  • Build structured data flows. There are many ways to make data flow diagrams. The Info-Tech approach is to use structured swim lanes vs. the historically unorganized visuals.
  • The effort to identify a subject’s applied regulation is not worth the effort: accept all Subject Access Requests regardless of jurisdiction.

Impact and Result

This blueprint will help you understand CCPA requirements for responding to data subjects or California residents:

  • Formalize your business-wide operationalization of CCPA.
  • Understand the risk of CCPA non-compliance.
  • Expand subject request processes to all of your data subjects .
