San Francisco, CA - Being able to identify the location of personal data is the most demanding aspect of complying with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) according to 38% of information security professionals polled in a random survey conducted at the RSA Conference 2020 held February 24 - 28. The survey conducted by BSI, the business improvement company, not only looked at the primary concerns about CCPA, but also the most critical information professionals consider when managing security regulations and what security requirements, other than CCPA, they adhere to.
On average, 20% have four or more security regulations they need to adhere to with ISO 27001 and HIPAA being the most common.
Supply chains present a unique issue with nearly 40% stating visibility into policy and procedures and continuous monitoring of business partners as the top two challenges.
“Navigating today’s cybersecurity landscape is increasingly difficult.” said Joseph Pierini, Head of Testing in the US for BSI. “Evolving threat vectors, growth in malicious actors, state-sponsored and otherwise, and new tactics, techniques and procedures make previously effective counter measures rapidly obsolete. These aggressive attacks combined with increased regulation leave many companies on the precipice of disaster. It is imperative that organizations understand their requirements, harden their systems, reduce their attack surface and independently test and evaluate their processes to ensure true data protection.”
The RSA Conference is the leading cybersecurity conference in North America and also provides practical educational opportunities that help industry professionals discover how to make their companies more secure. The RSA Conference 2020 is highlighting the most innovative ideas and solutions of the industry’s security leaders.
