In a hyper connected world where data insight gives organizations a competitive edge, the risks of managing and safeguarding that data - specifically personal data - have increased exponentially. How then, as business professionals, can we influence the importance of privacy and security management while at the same time we become enablers of innovative business models? During this session we will discuss the importance of a Privacy Management Program that ensures that the business achieves its goals while at the same time complies with regulatory and commercial expectations regarding the control and protection of personal data. From understanding what personal data is needed to provide superior products and services to assessing the risks to individuals and the organization to responding to data breaches if they happen, it is important to adopt a program that will guide strategic decisions and will help manage risks.
