Principles of data privacy and cybersecurity converge when organizations exchange, transfer, and process personal information. This program will focus on the operational challenges in creating global information governance solutions that can address evolving data privacy and cybersecurity requirements. As more legal regimes provide individuals with controls over personal data, with corresponding proactive obligations on companies to protect and secure that data, it is imperative that companies fully understand the business implications of the collection and use of personal data on your business risk management.
As if striking the balance between data privacy and cybersecurity were not enough, a cross-border data exchange is further complicated by the sometimes conflicting regulations between the US and international jurisdictions. The heightened regulatory environment within the European Union, with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and the growing influence of the GDPR framework on other regional privacy laws, is drastically changing the way businesses maintain and exchange personal data. Coupled with the recent addition of the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA), which impacts many U.S. based businesses, the measures taken to understand and control personal data are increasingly important. This discussion will explore the creation of effective information governance solutions that meet the requirements of the often converging domestic and international data obligations while balancing efficient and secure data management practices that meet the needs of the business.
