What is a CCPA Validation?

Vicis provides CCPA validation services to clients that need to demonstrate their CCPA compliance to other parties. A CCPA Validation or audit program offers a holistic framework for reviewing the complete spectrum of data-processing practices in the context of the CCPA. During a CCPA validation, Vicis performs a comprehensive evaluation of program-level measures such as privacy controls and evidence of those measures to ensure that the processing of personal information conducted by an organization, or by a third-party service provider on its behalf, is performed in compliance with the CCPA. A CCPA Validation publicly validates an organization’s CCPA compliance and delivers documentation that can be shared with potential customers or business partners.

What is a Data Protection Officer (DPO)? Do I need one?

The GDPR requires that certain organizations appoint a DPO who acts as the head of an organization’s privacy compliance program. Under the GDPR, a DPO is responsible for working towards legal compliance with EU data protection laws, monitoring processes such as DPIAs, overseeing employee awareness of data protection laws and compliance obligations, and working with regulatory authorities as needed.

If you are subject to the GDPR then you will need to appoint a DPO if (1) you are a public authority / body, or (2) your core activities (a) require large-scale, regular and systematic monitoring of individuals, or (b) consist of large-scale processing of special categories of sensitive data or data relating to criminal offences on a large scale. Appointment of a DPO is mandatory for organizations that satisfy any of the above scenarios, although other organizations can still appoint a DPO voluntarily. The same duties and responsibilities will apply to voluntarily-appointed DPOs.

However, having a DPO appointed is strong evidence that an organization is taking its data privacy and protection responsibilities seriously. If you are unsure whether you need to appoint a DPO or would simply like to understand more about the requirements, Vicis can help you understand what is required of your organization in order to comply with the requirements of the GDPR.
