SAN FRANCISCO, March 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- TrustArc, the leading privacy compliance company, today announced new offerings to help businesses meet the requirements of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). The new solutions feature the TrustArc Platform along with a proven methodology honed over thousands of customer engagements to provide a flexible and streamlined approach for developing and implementing a comprehensive CCPA privacy program.
California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)
The CCPA is set to be the toughest privacy law in the United States, broadly expanding the rights of consumers, and requiring businesses within scope to be significantly more transparent about how they collect, use, and disclose personal information. The CCPA compliance deadline is January 1, 2020 and will impact tens of thousands of businesses worldwide that have customers or employees located in California.
TrustArc CCPA Privacy Program Implementation Solutions
The new suite of solutions is designed to help companies develop and implement the processes and controls needed to manage the requirements for CCPA compliance, including:
- Data Inventory
- Risk Management
- Use, Retention and Disposal
- Children's Data Protection
- Third Parties and Onward Transfers
- Choice and Consent
- Access and Individual Rights
- Incident Response
- Policies and Standards
These solutions are offered in addition to the existing CCPA privacy assessments TrustArc introduced in November 2018, and are powered by the TrustArc Platform. The platform includes modules to automate the management of a wide range of privacy management tasks, including data flow mapping, assessment management, subject access requests, vendor risk and much more. The TrustArc consulting practice, comprised of a team of global privacy experts, is also available to help companies implement the processes they need to automate their privacy programs.
Chris Babel, CEO of TrustArc, commented "GDPR taught the importance of technology to managing and scaling privacy programs to meet regulatory needs. With additional laws like CCPA and others on the horizon, using technology to scale and automate programs is even more critical. While some companies may not be ready to implement technology until they develop their processes, our global services organization is taking the knowledge gathered from helping over 800 companies build their GDPR program to help develop a CCPA program they can operationalize with our technology platform."
