Privacy Protection Converges

Privacy Protection Converges 150 150 CloudGovCo

Privacy and data protection in the #cloud is converging with the European Union’s GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). In the USA the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), tabled in 2018,  takes full effect July 1 2020. Very Good Security (VGS)  has an overview of the CCPA and how it will affect your business and consumer rights in North America. For example, Microsoft will enforce the CCPA for all customers in the USA.

While creating a GDPR course and CloudGovCo‘s policies and procedures for data protection and incident response, we made our privacy policy compliant with the #GDPR, #CCPA and #PIPEDA, Canada’s Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act,

Canada is slowly revising its regulations to converge with GDPR, which is the international gold standard driving these changes. The province of British Columbia has struck a special committee to review privacy legislation and Quebec is planning to update its act Respecting the Protection of Personal Information in the Private Sector.
