Organizations had until 1 January 2019 to comply with the CCPA. Although there is no confirmed direct relationship between the CCPA requirements and information security, the tasks, activities, processes and system changes needed for CCPA compliance may affect an enterprise’s current information security processes, controls, policies, and procedures. The use of certification schemes like ISO/IEC 27001 can aid in demonstrating that the organization is actively managing data protection mechanisms in line with international best practices.
Information is one of the most valuable and business-critical assets for any organization. In today’s hyper-connected world, organizations are facing large-scale information security threats and destructive cyber-attacks. ISO/IEC 27001 certification confirms that your organization has appropriate controls in place to reduce the risk of serious data security threats and reduces the exploitation of vulnerabilities within your organization’s systems.
The deployment of ISO/IEC 27001 permits achieving the technical and operational requirements necessary to assist in preventing data leakage under the CCPA. Using an ISMS configuration can assist organizations, no matter the size and sector, in taking a systematic risk-based approach to managing and securing sensitive company data. ISO/IEC 27001 certification provides customers and other stakeholders with confidence that the organization’s manager-leaders have implemented internationally accepted best practices.
Although many businesses understand the importance of implementing the right procedures to protect personally identifiable information in compliance with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), not many are aware of the benefits of implementing International Organization for Standardization/International Electrotechnical Commission (ISO/IEC) 27001 standards-compliant with an information security management system (ISMS) deployment. ISO/IEC 27001 permits an excellent starting point for achieving the technical and operational requirements necessary to assist in preventing data leakage under the CCPA.
In this webinar, information systems management expert Dr. Robert E. Davis, CISA, CICA will walk you through how to implement a useful ISMS configuration that can help you towards compliance with the CCPA. Dr. Davis will discuss how to determine primary data leakage risks and incident handling associated with CCPA mandates. Dr. Davis will also highlight how to map CCPA requirements to management system controls.
