The Privacy Briefing: Looking the Board in the Eye

Presented by

Heather Federman, BigID. Tom Anderson and Ben Shorten, Accenture

About this talk

Two years after the General Data Protection Regulation was passed in the European Union, and with the onset of the California Consumer Privacy Act in the U.S., regulators are now enforcing these regulations — bringing more fines and penalties for companies that fail to meet their obligations. Now that privacy comes with a financial, regulatory and reputational risk, board members are looking to better understand their organization’s data privacy posture. Privacy practitioners in turn, need to be ready to demonstrate how they have operationalized their privacy compliance strategy. This requires data knowledge in order to protect and delete consumer data when they no longer have legitimate need for it. Join us for an interactive privacy education web conference featuring BigID and Accenture to: -Discuss how the stature of data privacy has risen to be an enterprise priority for Boards and C-Suite leadership. -Review how knowledge of the data environment delivers value to business beyond compliance. -Discuss the key considerations for data privacy leaders in providing effective updates to senior managers as programs continue to evolve. Host: Dave Cohen, CIPP/E, CIPP/US, Knowledge Manager, IAPP Panelists: Tom Anderson, Director, Data and Artificial Intelligence, Accenture Ben Shorten, Managing Director, Compliance and Privacy, Accenture Heather Federman, CIPP/US, Vice President of Privacy and Policy, BigID
