There now are new standards for user privacy and control according to Janco Associates – Janco has just released an update to its Security Manual Template which identifies mandated user rights and enterprise responsibilities related to privacy protection. The CEO of Janco, Mr. M. Victor Janulaitis said, “We have reviewed in detail the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CaCPA) and generated a detail list of user rights and business responsibilities that are mandated.

These mandates will impact all organizations that have an Internet presence in the U.S. and California in particular. The compliance deadline is January 1, 2020.”
