DP still not a priority

North American businesses are still not considering data protection a priority, with only 37% of senior business managers in the region acknowledging the importance of compliance ahead of the implementation of the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA).

The findings of the Egress ( survey “Key Steps in Satisfying Your CCPA and Other Privacy Obligations”, found that senior managers outside of the compliance and legal function don’t know much about the CCPA or its potential implications.

Conducted by Osterman Research, Inc. on behalf of Egress, the survey also found that more than half of organizations (58%) believe there is some overlap in compliance between GDPR and CCPA, but CCPA will require a fresh look at systems.

The Consent is a critical element of GDPR, CCPA, and other privacy regulation compliance, yet only about 50% of organizations have reviewed how they obtain consent from external parties, leaving them open to non-compliance problems.

Only about two-thirds (69%) of organisations currently have a data breach notification procedure, despite the fact that data breach notification requirements have been established in most states for many years.
