Finding, Classifying, and Securing Personal Information Under the CCPA

Presented by

About this talk

The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) likely represents the most stringent privacy statute to be enacted at the U.S. state level and applies to all businesses in the U.S. and potentially to those around the world. It’s definition of personal information is surprisingly broad, and includes purchasing histories, interactions with web sites and advertisements, and even inferences made from personal information. However, other states have not been idle in the data protection realm and have updated their statutes and regulations to also expand the definition of personal information. In this “hands on” webinar, two data protection industry veterans describe how these new laws define personal information and demonstrate how you can find and secure them wherever they exist in your information “ecosystem.” Takeaways include: -An understanding of how the CCPA defines personal information -Strategies for locating personal information, both structured and unstructured, behind your firewall and in the cloud -How to demonstrate compliance to business partners and regulatory authorities Speaker: Scott M.
