The first step any financial institution must take in its response to the new CCPA law is to evaluate its exposure and current state of readiness. We can help firms identify gaps, including areas that need immediate action and longer-term changes to support the program.
Areas that may require immediate action include any of the following:
Planning: Review of project governance, project plans, and risk logs to identify red flags
Analysis: Identification of critical process and data gaps, implementation or reinforcement of governance processes, documentation of requirements
Implementation: Technical services to consolidate customer data, develop governance and approval workflows, and make infrastructure upgrades
Quality assurance: Develop test plans and test cases and provide test automation
Longer-term measures may include changes to existing business processes and data silos to reduce the proliferation of customer personal data. These measures will make it easier to manage the usage and distribution of this data, and reduce the risk of data breaches.
