Why CCPA is important for an organization’s ITAD program?
On January 1, 2020, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) went into effect, impacting how organizations throughout the United States collect, process, and share personal information about California consumers. The new regulation applies to any business that collects consumers’ personal information, does business in California, and satisfies at least one of the following thresholds:
- Has annual gross revenues in excess of $25,000,000
- Possesses the personal information of 50,000 or more consumers, households, or devices
- Earns more than half of its annual revenue from selling consumers’ personal information
- Send the assets to disposition immediately after removing them from service. Stockpiling out-of-use equipment in storage and delaying sanitizing the data on the devices leaves you at risk for a security issue.
- Ensure there is a clear chain of custody and audit trail for end-of-life devices, inclusive of providers involved in transporting devices to an ITAD processing facility.
