Assess and Manage Uncertain Global Data Privacy Regulations

With the meteoric rise of data proliferation worldwide has come new privacy laws such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the European Union (EU) and various derivative laws either on the books or on the way at regional, national and state levels in the U.S., including the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). These drivers of change are pressure-testing data privacy compliance programmes and creating a complex legal matrix for companies to navigate.

Compliance with current privacy laws is one standard. Understanding how to incorporate data privacy into the organisation’s corporate strategy and business model, and how management defines the appropriate use of consumer data, is a different and higher standard.
