CPRA: An Opportunity for Security Education
While it’s true that the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA, or Prop 24) creates additional responsibilities for businesses, a recent poll shows that 81% of voters favor the proposed law. Additionally, even though the CPRA allows for an extended grace period (until January 1, 2023) for businesses to comply with its standards, they should not hesitate to reexamine their privacy practices now.
In this article, Rob Shavell, CEO of Abine, argues that employers could use the CPRA as a catalyst for creating a culture of privacy within their organizations. What he doesn’t mention is the relationship between privacy and security.
By teaching your employees about privacy, you can also create a more security-aware team. Making the connection between being secure online and protecting personal information can convince some employees to take their mandatory security training a little more seriously.
