Protecting personal information is the new normal, and personal data privacy will be the most prominent issue affecting how businesses gather, store, process, and disclose data in 2020. Gartner includes data ethics and privacy on their list of the top 10 strategic technology trends of 2019 and moving into 2020, placing it on the same level as AI-driven development, blockchain, and edge computing.
Businesses have been inundated with information on what recent privacy laws like GDPR and CCPA require, but many are still trying to figure out how to comply with them on a practical level. Many companies are focusing on data privacy from the legal and security side, which are definitely foundational, but are missing the focus on data. The good news is that these data privacy regulations compel businesses to get a handle on personal data — how they get it, where they get it from, which systems process it, where it goes internally and externally, etc. In other words, the new norms of data privacy require proactive data management, which enables organizations to extract real business value from their data, improve the customer experience, streamline internal processes, and better understand their customers.
In this webinar, Logic20/20 will provide a practical “how-to” guide to data privacy so that you can understand where your data is and ensure that your business processes and technical systems will allow you to comply with data subject requests such as the “right to be forgotten.”
Key takeaways include
- Creating a strategy for aligning your data systems and processes with privacy law requirements
- Building a data privacy foundation across 4 areas: data management, security, policies, and contracts
- Capturing your data inventory and processing activities
- Mapping your data systems, data processes, and data flows (both within and outside of the company)
- Designing a data privacy governance strategy
- Planning for “triggers” that could impact your compliance status
