As we move into 2020 it is worth highlighting 2 key dates in January:
1st January 2020 is the official start date of the new data protection legislation – the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). If your organisation handles the data of US consumers, ensure you are aware of this new legislation and what it means for you.
28th January 2020 is International Data Privacy Day! Consider making this as a day within your company to coordinate comms and awareness. Encourage employees to put aside some time to check their own compliance activities – that data is being held in line with retention rules, to review the latest policies or training and review records of processing activity.
