As a result of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), California residents have the right to protect their personal information and enforce their privacy rights as a matter of law. It is the aim of this act to provide California consumers with the right to know what personal information is being collected about them.
In addition, it is designed to prevent the sale of such information if they choose to request so. It is also required by the CCPA that businesses implement security measures in order to prevent unauthorized access to, exfiltration of, theft of, or disclosure of consumers' personal information.
In order to ensure compliance with the CCPA, data security administrators must continuously monitor and audit activities across their networks. They must also monitor information relating to data access as well.
