The trajectory of privacy regulations "is even a bigger story than the nuts and bolts of the legal compliance," Finch says.
In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent Fraud and Breach Summit in Seattle, Finch discusses:
- The changes companies need to make to comply with CCPA;
- How IoT devices are collecting more data than businesses realize and what that means for security;
- Why other states are developing privacy regulations.
