So, you’re on the fence on whether or not you should comply with the CCPA rules. Don’t worry. The CCPA is not really as complicated as some people think.
The CCPA can actually be really easy to understand and follow. We’ll help you learn everything you need to know about both the CCPA and data security.
And, we can also help you find out whether or not the CCPA affects your business. Here’s how:
The CCPA and Businesses
Alright, so one thing that you should definitely know about the CCPA is that it gives a lot of rights to consumers.
Why does it do that? Well, businesses that collect data from California residents used to do it without them ever knowing about it.
And, we’re not talking about any public data that you would find on your best friend’s social media platform. We are talking about personal data, which includes your name, address, passport and credit card number. The list goes on and on.
Now, that’s not to say that companies collect this data so they can use it against you. There would be no actual gain in doing that. At least not in the long run.
The real reason why companies want to collect your data is so they can learn more about you. What your preferences are, what your hobbies are, anything that can help them learn more about you.
That way, they can imply that knowledge into the way they do business with you. So, in the end, all parties can come out victorious.
You will get to see and consume more of what you are looking for. And, businesses will grow bigger in name. It’s a win-win situation.
So, why would complying with the CCPA bother you?
Well, some of your customers might not like the idea that you are collecting their data. Which means that they might choose to ask you a ton of questions regarding their data. One of which can be: ”Can you please stop collecting my personal data?”
And, since you have to comply with the CCPA, you would have to listen to everything they have to say and respect their wishes.
So how can you be sure that you are one of these businesses?
Do You Need to Comply with the CCPA?
The CCPA doesn’t apply to every single business in the world. It is specific to the ones that are either within California, or that at least do business with California and its residents.
In order for your business to be affected by the CCPA, it needs to:
- Have an annual revenue of at least $25 million
- Collect, buy, or sell the personal information of 50,000 or more California residents
- Derive 50% or more of their annual revenue from selling the personal information of California residents
If your business fits into those criteria then you have to comply with the CCPA. But, as we said earlier, that doesn’t necessarily need to be a bad thing.
All you need to do is adapt. We can help you do that. All you need to do is use BitLocker and BitTruster.
BitLocker can encrypt your data at lightning speed, while BitTruster can manage that data really efficiently.
We will help you keep customer data safe. That way, your customers will sleep better knowing they can trust you.
Your business doesn’t have to worry about CCPA compliance. We, at BitTruster, can make sure of that.
Why waste your time wondering about the easiest way to comply with the CCPA, when you can focus on the future of your company.
