Symantec cybersecurity alum joins forces with privacy and regulatory legal expert from McDermott Will & Emery LLP to help business navigate California’s new data privacy law
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- (Oct. 10, 2019) -- Only 14 percent of enterprises are on track to comply with CCPA when the new data privacy law goes into effect on Jan. 1, 2020, but penalties for non-compliance are set at $7,500 per violation in addition to potential class-action lawsuits. That’s why SECURITI.ai, a leader in PrivacyOps, is hosting a series of interactive workshops to help companies with best practices to operationalize and automate compliance for CCPA and beyond. Anchored on personal data intelligence, PrivacyOps enables automation and a collaborative framework to simplify and reduce the cost of compliance.
SECURITI.ai will host dozens of free workshops in all major cities across the U.S., featuring Michael Morgan, co-chair of Global Privacy & Cybersecurity at the international law firm McDermott Will & Emery LLP, and Rehan Jalil, CEO of SECURITI.ai and Symantec’s former head of cloud security.
Those interested in attending can find the specific location and itinerary details for upcoming workshops on the PrivacyOps website.
“CCPA is all about providing rights to people on their personal data held by companies. Because user data is highly dynamic and spread across disparate systems the manual and survey driven legacy methods of privacy management are simply ineffective and inefficient for CCPA compliance,” points out Jalil. “AI and bots in a PrivacyOps framework can provide real-time personal data intelligence and automate privacy compliance, reducing compliance cost and risk of penalties.”
“Many companies are unaware of what rights CCPA grants consumers, what their obligations are under CCPA, and that many non-tech companies are covered by CCPA,” said Morgan. “Given that penalties are assessed per violation and there is a potential for class-action lawsuits, it’s critical for leaders to educate themselves and fully understand how to prepare and protect their businesses.”
The first phase of workshops will be held in the following cities:
