California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)

Data Subject Rights Solution

What’s Happened?

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) of 2018 broadly expands the rights of California consumers and requires certain businesses to be far more transparent about how they collect, use and disclose personal information. Among other rights, California consumers may submit requests for the right to:

  • Know what personal information is being collected and why
  • Request deletion of their personal information
  • Request information about onward disclosures and, if applicable, the “selling” of their personal information
  • Know the categories of third parties with whom their data is shared, as well as those from whom their data was acquired

Solution

NAVEX has enhanced two of our existing solutions to help you prepare for and manage the processes required in this new legislation.

EthicsPoint® provides a solution to track, manage and report on these requests with the Data Subject Rights hotline and web intake bundle. Avoid the hassle of building an internal solution or learning and managing a new software solution by adding this bundled version of the hotline and incident management solution you’re already invested in.

NAVEXEngage® also has a legally vetted CCPA training course. CCPA training is a recommended best practice for all employees and is required for certain employees. Help ensure employees across your organization not only understand the importance of this new legislation, but are ready to adhere to its requirements.
