With the start of the new year comes newly passed laws and regulations that businesses need to prepare and adhere to. And this year is a BIG ONE for cybersecurity and privacy professionalsthe California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).  

The CCPA is the first sweeping legislation in the U.S. to give consumers control over how their personal information is used online and may signal how other states will seek to protect their residents’ privacy. Essentially, the CCPA takes a broader view than the European GDPR of what constitutes private data. The challenge for security, then, is to locate and secure that private data. 

Join our host Michael Mayes, Sr. Writer & Researcher at Armor, as he meets with leading compliance and security professionals Mike Annand and Carlin Dornbusch to discuss:  

  • The basics of CCPA 
  • Building foundational privacy program 
  • The privacy paradigm of legislation like CCPA & GDPR and their impact on businesses  
  • Challenges and recommendations
