Compliance & Privacy Partners helps companies like yours comply with these regulations by:
- Knowing your data – Compliance starts with understanding what data you retain and what you do with it. We help organizations efficiently complete their data mapping exercises to visually understand what personal information is collected, how it’s stored, how it’s accessed, and whom it’s made accessible or shared with.
- Responding to consumer requests – We help you set up a consumer-facing and backend system to allow, verify and process data subject requests to access, delete, or correct information and to help a consumer opt-out of the sale of their information.
- Updating policies and procedures – Privacy policies must be updated regularly and we make sure your data collection forms and disclosures accurately describe your data collection processes and comply with the regulations. We help you to use plain language and alert customers of any updates.
- Working with your data processing vendors – Ensuring vendors and business partners are working towards compliance is critical. We help you identify and update vendor contracts with the appropriate roles and responsibilities and limit your organization’s liability in the event of non-compliance.
- Providing education and training – We help you train consumer-facing staff so they are prepared to inform consumers about how the company is complying with regulations like the CCPA and in processing requests. Compliance, legal, IT, operations, and marketing teams should all be aware of how compliance with this law works around the organization.
- Monitoring and compliance – Establishing governance with clearly defined roles and responsibilities within your organizations is key to sustaining compliance. We help organizations like yours formalize their compliance programs and perform privacy impact assessments.
