How Can GLS Help You Meet the CCPA Training Requirements?
Are you a for-profit organization that collects personal information on California residents as a Controller (i.e. determines the purpose and means of processing the data) and meets one or more of the following thresholds?
- Has annual gross revenues in excess of $25,000,000, OR
- Annually buys or sells the personal information of 50,000 or more consumers, households, or devices in California, OR
- Derives 50% or more of annual revenues from selling consumers’ personal information.
If you answered YES, then the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA) applies to you!
What are the training requirements under the CCPA?
CCPA Section 1798.130(a)(6) requires organizations to ensure that all individuals responsible for handling consumer inquiries about the organization’s privacy practices or compliance are informed of consumers rights under the CCPA and how to direct consumers to exercise their rights. For example, if customer service representatives are answering questions from California consumers about your organization’s privacy practices, then they must be familiar with specific sections of the CCPA.
