How to find data at risk for CCPA compliance

Oct 30th, 2019

Gary Allemann, MD at Master Data Management

Coming in January 2020, California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) mandates data privacy protection for California consumers much like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the European Union and South Africa’s Protection of Personal Information (PoPI) Act.

Personal information for consumers, households, and devices is covered and it is broadly applied. It’s not just names and addresses or personal identifiers like driver’s license and social security number but also includes geolocation data; records of personal property; products or services purchased, obtained, or even considered for purchase; browsing history; education information and professional information. And you need to know where all that information is.

It’s time to put data profiling to work! You need rapid insight into your data sources whether on traditional platforms or in your data lake, and you need to find the outliers, not just cursory review of data samples, that help you ensure you’ve identified all the places this information has spread to as the information has been copied, reported, and delivered from central data stores.

Join Master Data Management for this Syncsort webinar. Taking place on Thursday, the 14th of November 2019, this webinar will discuss some of the salient points of CCPA and show you how to leverage Trillium Discovery to profile, assess, and evaluate the data sources to find personal data at risk.
