Data443 is well positioned to take advantage of this
Continued increase in the IT security burden imposed on businesses
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC, November 6, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Data443 Risk Mitigation, Inc. (“Data443” or the “Company”) (OTCPK: ATDS), a leading data protection and privacy software company , provided an update on the California Privacy Rights and Enforcement Act (“CPRA”), passed by California voters on November 3, 2020. The CPRA is a new law in the state of California that expands consumer data privacy by requiring businesses to provide consumers with the ability to opt out of the collection of sensitive personal information collected and also requires companies to refrain from sharing users’ personal information, if required. The CPRA expands, modifies and increases the protections offered by the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), which was adopted on January 1, 2020, with enforcement actions initiated in July 2020.
Jason Remillard, CEO of Data443, provided the following insights and comments: “The CPRA creates an even greater cybersecurity burden for businesses than the CCPA. The new law is arguably the strictest consumer data privacy law in the world. our country, which imposes stringent legal requirements on how companies collect and share consumer data. It also establishes a new state agency (with a budget of $ 10 million per year) to implement and enforce the CPRA. In short, the CPRA places a greater duty on companies to provide reasonable security for sensitive data, with penalties for violations, including emails and passwords.
“People have the right to their personal data and the right to protect it. Under the CPRA, companies must allow these rights by protecting personal data and providing consumers with access to their personal data. As is Data443 All Things Data Security ™, we already automatically support all aspects of the CPRA for our customers. Our diverse and unrivaled product feature set protects third-party email, documents, databases and services – in the cloud, in your office or remotely at your employees’ home office.
“The CPRA is very similar to the European GDPR law, for which Data443 has a proven solution: Data443® Global Privacy Manager, the platform for privacy compliance and consumer loss reduction integrated with our ClassiDocs® platform. Additionally, nearly 40,000 companies already use our world-leading WordPress GDPR framework on a daily basis to secure their businesses and support their customers for GDPR requests. Under the CPRA, consumers have the right to know the categories of information collected and can even see specific information a company has about them, such as email or address. Consumers can also order companies not to “sell” their data to other companies and “give up”, as well as order any company that has collected their data and anyone who has shared that data to delete it from their records. . This is the so-called “opt-out” provision.
“What does this mean for Data443? It means more business opportunities for us, because this is what we do. Because the CPRA holds companies responsible for ensuring that data shared with third parties or suppliers is properly deleted upon request, as well as protecting the data, these companies will need our products, services and expertise.
“The CPRA is the continuing and inevitable maturation of global privacy policies. Every jurisdiction in the world is experiencing this. It is not possible to provide solutions for this market without a broad, mature and combined product offering that covers all types of data, in all locations, in all types of formats handled by all types of relationships. Companies are ultimately responsible for the custody and management of this personal information, and this represents a big change in the way that information has been handled in the past.
“Companies are now recognizing this new skill or capability as a competitive differentiator. The ability to provide, manage and properly accompany a customer through a privacy request scenario minimally becomes a competitive differentiator and, in many cases, a situation of serious customer loyalty.
“Just like in the days when telecommunications did not provide detailed billing of their services on a monthly basis – customers naturally switched to service providers who were more transparent with their services and offerings – such as detailed billing of each call and cost of the service – dragging the whole industry along with it. We’ve built privacy compliance along the same path and continue to do so.
“Nearly 100% of our existing customer base has an existing privacy management or compliance program actively in place, with the same or greater board-level visibility as information security or other serious board-level programs. . “
