California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)
The CCPA gives California residents the right to know what personal information a business keeps about them, understand how it gets used, and then prevent or delete the collection of their personal information. The California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) extended CCPA to cover California-based employees, contractors, and emergency contacts. In addition, it introduced new consumer rights and further expanded the definition of personal information.
Cloud data governance
Cloud data governance encompasses all principles, policies, and procedures for managing data in cloud environments. It focuses on managing the privacy of data according to regulatory compliance requirements and industry standards; mitigating data risk; and ensuring data is accurate, available and usable across the organization. Cloud data governance should enable organizations to adhere to privacy standards without interrupting organization-wide access to data. Learn more about cloud data governance.
Cloud security posture management
Cloud security posture management focuses on continuously monitoring and assessing the security posture of cloud infrastructure. CSPM platforms scan for potential cloud infrastructure risks such as misconfigurations, vulnerabilities or overly-permissive access control. Because they focus on the infrastructure of cloud environments, CSPM platforms lack the ability to do robust data discovery and classification, provide only limited context about the data, and do not have any focus on privacy, compliance, or governance requirements. Understand the difference between CSPM vs. DSPM.
