Your job it is to minimize the unauthorized disclosure of protected information.

Data privacy is a juggling act in multinational organizations when it comes to fulfilling the needs of the organization and complying with local privacy laws. Ultimately, data privacy boils down to protecting the information held about individuals to prevent others from accessing their personal information and/or stealing their identity. But getting the job done is hard, especially if you don’t manage the basics.

To be successful, you’ll need to …

  • Be the champion of privacy and security policies for confidential information
  • and give employees and staff the knowledge and tools they need to be proper guardians
  • while enforcing, auditing and documenting compliance
  • and continuously monitor and respond to new legislative and regulatory directives.

But these tasks are not easily done. The business has been doing things the current way forever and habits are hard to break.  You have to make progress by …

  • Defining proper business data ethics; going beyond what’s required to what’s right.
  • and ensuring protected data remains approachable by balancing privacy, access, and data value.
  • and making sure privacy is considered in every IT decision.
  • and defining the vital characteristics of the data you’re protecting because your data lifecycle isn’t complete without these answers.

Let TechVision Research help you make progress. Our advisory workshops are designed to help you understand the basics, what you are doing well, and what you might need to improve.
