Becoming Your Trusted Compliance Partner: The Services We’ve Added
In addition to new employees, we have also added new services.
California Consumer Privacy Act
We recently added California Consumer Privacy act and the Third-Party Risk Assessments to our expansive list of service offerings. You might be asking yourself, what is the California Consumer Privacy act? The CCPA gives California consumers the right to demand to know about all of the information that a company collects and stores about them. Additionally, the customer has the right to know about any third parties with whom the company has shared their personal information. Finally, the new California law allows consumers to sue a company if they feel that privacy guidelines have been violated, even if there has been no data breach.
