TrustArc Platform Enhancements Simplify Privacy Management for CCPA, GDPR and Other Global Regulations

New dashboard streamlines compliance and risk management for privacy, IT and business teams


Washington, DC, IAPP Global Privacy Summit 2019, May 2, 2019 - TrustArc, the leading privacy compliance management company, today announced a major expansion of its award-winning privacy platform to simplify compliance management for GDPR, California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and other privacy regulations. The enhancements include a set of dynamic components including regulatory updates, risk scores, program status, and other privacy program Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) integrated into a unified privacy program management dashboard.

The privacy regulatory landscape is changing dramatically and businesses are looking for ways to stay on top of the new requirements. The major catalysts have been the GDPR and CCPA (which goes into effect January 1, 2020), but there have been over 50 additional laws and regulations adopted in the past 12 months, including announcements from Brazil (LGPD), China, Nigeria and over a dozen U.S. states. While the laws and regulations share many common elements, they each require varying levels of support for privacy risk assessments, consent, individual rights, breach response and compliance reports.

Chris Babel, TrustArc CEO commented, "Achieving and maintaining compliance with the new regulations is becoming impossible without an automated system to plan, analyze, and manage privacy across the company. Also, to ensure compliance, companies need assistance from IT, HR, Marketing, and other groups outside of legal and privacy. Getting all of these groups involved requires the system to be usable by people who are not privacy experts and today's platform enhancements were designed to help make privacy management easier."
