All organizations have to balance insider risk management and employee privacy. Organizations should aim to monitor activity while maintaining employees’ trust and privacy based on organizational risk appetite, culture, and compliance needs. Despite the lack of a comprehensive, federal privacy regulation like the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), states such as California are instituting their own privacy mandates. State-based protections can have wide-spread impact, causing many organizations to rethink or change their insider risk management practices. This blog post reviews the general framework of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA),  describes specific implications for insider risk  management, and provides recommendations to prepare insider risk programs to mitigate concerns before the CCPA takes effect.
