California Student Aid Commission (CSAC) launches new website
Helping California families achieve their dreams of higher education

California Student Aid Commission new website by government web design agency, Digital Deployment

The California Student Aid Commission (CSAC) is an inspired organization dedicated to changing lives by making higher education financially accessible to all Californians.

Established in 1955, CSAC accomplishes this by providing access to financial aid programs, guidance, and support services to a diverse range of students, families, schools, counselors, and financial aid administrators across the state.

Reaching 1.2 million site visitors annually, CSAC’s website is an essential tool for communicating and guiding families through the vast programs and opportunities they offer. Understanding the importance of this project, CSAC sought out Digital Deployment for our expertise in building effective government websites that not only meet the stringent standards for the state, but more importantly, transform the user experience for those that rely upon them.

GDPR: What do the new privacy regulations mean for your site?
A 30-minute webinar for US-based organizations

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect in May 2018. GDPR is a set of regulations that gives citizens of the European Union more control over their personal data privacy and standardizes business regulations. 

All organizations operating within the EU are subject to the GDPR, as well as any non-EU organizations that offer goods or services in the EU. Many American companies that have limited interaction with customers or business in the EU are struggling to learn what updates—if any—need to be made to their websites to be GDPR-compliant. 

This 30-minute webinar was tailored to anyone who manages a website and/or is responsible for compliance with applicable laws. Though we can’t give legal advice, we walked through the most common things our customers can do to comply with the GDPR, including how to install a GDPR-compliant cookie notification.

Staff Update Sloane Dell'Orto

Growth brings more space, and fresh faces

With both the Digital Deployment and Streamline teams growing, it finally became time to secure a bit more space for both sides of the company. Streamline has moved operations to a new space upstairs, creating room downstairs for the two new Digital Deployment team members starting later this month (more on that in our next newsletter!)

In May, Maria Lara joined the team as Streamline’s new Community Manager, coming from UCSF where she managed their research program’s marketing and outreach. She will be helping support and train our clients, and working with Sloane on marketing efforts, conference planning, and more.
