Vendor Risk Management Under the CCPA
Under the CCPA, a service provider processes personal information on a business’s behalf. As such, service providers will fall under your vendor risk management program. Businesses like yours should know what service providers are in use, what data they hold, and whether key contract provisions are in place. This information is critical for managing consumers’ requests to opt-out of the sale their personal information or to delete their personal information.
Under the CCPA, service providers have key responsibilities pursuant to written contracts. Service providers must not use, retain, or disclose consumers’ personal information other than for the specific purpose stipulated in the contract, or as otherwise permitted by the CCPA. With OneTrust Vendorpedia, track contractual terms and hold service providers accountable for personal information processing agreements.
