There is no shortage of privacy laws and regulations. We keep hearing that the latest privacy laws “will change everything”, but have they made a real difference? This session proposes an alternative approach. Privacy can be treated as an attribute of personally identifiable information and can be managed using data management techniques. Rather than building privacy programs on compliance with laws, it may be more productive to manage the data itself.
Key takeaways include:
1. Why and how data privacy has been managed in recent years.
2. How the compliance-based approach to privacy has shaped organizational approaches to the issue.
3. How data management principles can offer a different, and perhaps better, way for managing privacy.
4. How a data management approach would alter organizational structures.
