GoodData, a provider of end-to-end analytics solutions, is now providing compliance with the new California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) within its flagship platform.
“We are in a new era of data privacy. Companies need to comply with new and tougher laws and, more importantly, better serve their customers by meeting new standards for data privacy,” said Roman Stanek, GoodData CEO. “The real value of data is in being able to use, analyze and share it. That value can only be optimized if privacy and security are front and center.”
By deploying GoodData, the company says, customers can be assured that they’re not only getting robust analytics but state-of-the-art data governance policies, data security measures, regulatory controls, access measures, and data distribution capabilities.
GoodData has two guiding principles with privacy: that it be designed into the product from the get-go, and that it be the default position so that companies only collect data they need, that they know why they collect it and where it goes.
The pillars of GoodData’s security platform are:
- GoodData Security Shield: an industry-standard security compliance package that includes best practices for data protection in the cloud, including SOC 2 Type II report, ISO 27001:2013 compliance, GDPR compliance, and CCPA compliance.
- GoodData Enterprise Shield: recently launched and built on top of GoodData’s Security Shield, GoodData’s Enterprise Shield is built for enterprise environments with sensitive or regulated data that require additional assurance on security practices, data handling, and implementation.
The CCPA, effective January 1, 2020, impacts more than 500,000 companies nationwide that conduct business in California and meet certain revenue or consumer data management criteria.
The CCPA requires businesses to disclose what information they collect, for what business purposes, and any third parties with whom they share that data. Businesses also must comply with official consumer requests to delete data. The act follows the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which gave new data privacy protections to millions of European Union citizens.
