“Privacy has emerged as a national, and international, priority for business and consumers alike.” – George Wrenn, CEO, CyberSaint
Boston-based CyberSaint Security is looking to help organizations comply with new privacy legislation in California, announcing that it has added a California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) framework to its CyberStrong platform.
Slated to take effect on January 1st, 2020, the CCPA is aimed at establishing more stringent privacy protections for Californians, laying out PII regulations concerning biometrics, browsing data, and employment information. It’s somewhat along the lines of the European Union’s GDPR regulation, and similarly requires a reorientation of data practices among the organizations affected.
CyberStrong, meanwhile, is CyberSaint’s automated compliance platform. It’s built on the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and leverages AI to help organizations mitigate risk in their online practices. So incorporating a CCPA framework to help clients attain compliance is a natural step forward for the platform.
“Privacy has emerged as a national, and international, priority for business and consumers alike,” explained CyberSaint CEO George Wrenn in a statement announcing the development. “Our customers are looking to adopt best practices for compliance and risk management, and it’s critical to help not only security leadership, but also CEOs and Boards of Directors proactively understand the importance, status, and implications of consumer privacy and data protection on their business.”
CyberStrong’s CCPA framework could help a number of businesses to reach compliance, and may have the added benefit of driving client organizations to biometric security solutions – a trend that was observed in the race for GDPR compliance as well.
