The California Department of Conservation released a study on landslide risks. The map in the link below shows the relative likelihood of deep landsliding based on regional estimates of rock strength and steepness of slopes. On the most basic level, weak rocks and steep slopes are more likely to generate landslides.

I don’t know if they have more detailed maps of local areas. This one makes it look like most of Santa Barbara and SLO Counties are landside risks.
