The Five Major Steps to CCPA Compliance

1. Data Mapping

The cornerstone of CCPA compliance. Businesses must perform an in-depth analysis of what personal data it collects, where it is stored, how it is used, and with whom it is shared.

2. Vendor Classification

A critical part of any compliance strategy is determining which of a business’s vendors qualify as “service providers,” and are therefore exempt from some of the CCPA’s rules.

3. Privacy Policy & Notices

Once you have a complete picture of how consumer data is collected and used, you can create a CCPA-compliant privacy policy and any additional required notices.

4. Request Processing

Every type of CCPA privacy request has its own rules and exceptions. Creating a plan in advance for responding to them will make the process more efficient, more uniform, and less prone to mistakes.
