California Consumer Privacy Act and the Role of IAM

Tueday, April 30, 2019
9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. (PDT)

According to Gartner, by 2022, more than 75% of entities that intend to manage commerce or technology engagements including regions, states, and countries worldwide will have begun to change their privacy regulations to follow the example of the GDPR. GDPR has driven a global movement of more mature privacy and data protection laws.

California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a bill that was passed by the California State Legislature and signed into law on June 28, 2018. The intention of the act is to provide enhanced privacy rights and consumer protections to residents of the state of California. The CCPA will become effective from January 1, 2020.

Having a thorough understanding of CCPA regulations is a must to any of the entities as violators are entitled to be fined. When it comes to privacy, identity and access management (IAM) plays a major role in assisting with regulation compliance efforts.

This webinar will focus on exploring the basics of the CCPA including the following areas:

  • What is CCPA?
  • How can enterprises prepare for it?
  • GDPR vs CCPA
  • How IAM can help with CCPA and other privacy regulations
