Opérations de Privacy (FR)
*En français avec interprétation simultanée en français*
Privacy has always been relegated to a secondary role, an afterthought, with the business considering it as part of a legal checklist. But now, and certainly driven by recent data breaches (like Facebook- Cambridge Analytica), countries or even entire regions across the globe, have implemented new regulations and/or laws, or are working on new draft laws. Some of the recent breaches have shown that using personal data unlawfully can escalate from disclosing an individual’s private life, up to potentially changing elections results. Everyone is involved at different levels; we all have an impact on privacy. It could be from the amount of our information that we willingly disclose or, as employees, when we handle individual’s personal data. This is clear; organisations have a role to play but it starts with each employee of those organisations. Everyone tends to agree that it is not an easy move from the old world to the new, especially for interconnected areas of mass data collection. Sometimes one part of an organisation does not know what the other parts are doing. Ever more difficult is the budget allocations for financing something that appears to provide no direct return on investment. Sizing, targeting, prioritizing and preparing for continuous improvement cycles in privacy management, instead of implementing a succession of one- (per jurisdiction) will surely help your organisation overcome the challenges.
