Now more than ever, it is critical to put privacy considerations front and centre in compliance, governance and decision-making processes.
Indeed, privacy should be given the same high priority as any other issue which can significantly and materially adversely impact on an organisation’s financial, operational and reputational position.
We have industry leading experience and expertise to work with you to ensure that your organisation is privacy compliant and is moving to embed privacy considerations into your organisation's compliance, governance and decision-making processes as a strategy to mitigate and manage privacy compliance efficiently and effectively.
The questions are: how do agencies start this process, and what are the steps to take in responding to these issues?
This program, run by Eleanor Dickens and Sam Weston, teaches that there are two essential steps that organisations must take to tackle this challenge:
Refresh and reboot – properly understand privacy compliance obligations and personal information holdings. We recommend that all organisations take steps immediately to ensure that they are compliant with the privacy regulatory framework, with the first step being to properly understand what privacy compliance looks like from legal, practical and operational settings and to properly understand the nature of the personal information that the organisation holds.
Putting privacy first – injecting privacy considerations into compliance, governance and decision-making frameworks.
It is essential that privacy be considered in the same way as any other risk would be considered in an organisation’s compliance, governance and decision-making frameworks and processes.
