Welcome to module to privacy strategy and program.
00:06
Module 2.1
00:07
role of the privacy manager
00:11
during this video will explore what it means to be a privacy manager and understand the goals and functions of a privacy program
00:19
responsibilities of the privacy manager include
00:22
identify privacy obligations for the organization, identify business employee and customer privacy risks
00:28
and identify existing documentation and implement policies.
00:33
I would strongly urge that if you don't have a specific privacy manager, these responsibilities are at least claimed by someone within the organization
00:44
responsibilities of the privacy manager
00:48
further include awareness and training, incident response, privacy controls and monitoring privacy impact assessments,
00:56
development of staff design and production management, vendor management metrics and audit cross border data transfers
01:03
and monitor legislative change.
01:06
Now it's important to note that a privacy manager may not be conducting all of these functions. However,
01:14
a privacy manager should be aware of who is conducting these functions have some sort of responsibility to make sure that they get done and have a way to report whether or not these functions are occurring.
01:27
What is the privacy program management
01:30
privacy program management?
01:32
According to the International Association of Privacy professionals
01:34
and one of our suggestion readings
01:38
is a structured approach of combining several disciplines into a framework that allows an organization to meet legal compliance requirements and expectations of business clients or customers while reducing the risk of a data breach.
01:53
The goal of our privacy program,
01:53
promote consumer trust and confidence, enhance the organization's reputation, facilitate program awareness, respond to privacy breaches and monitoring, maintain the program
02:05
sounds easy. Right?
02:06
Well, this course we're going to go through all the facets needed to make sure that you're checking these boxes
02:15
functions included in privacy program
02:19
information security, information technology, application development, communications procurement, internal audit learning and training, human resources, marketing, finance and accounting.
02:30
Now your privacy manager may not once again be responsible for these areas solely. However, they may be responsible for ensuring that all these functions have a role within the privacy program or have responsibilities to make sure the privacy program is successful,
02:46
I added finance and accounting
02:50
to this course to ensure that those folks have a seat at the table to make sure they are aware of any type of capital expense or operational expenses that may be needed
03:00
to run your program at least for the first few years, getting it off the ground and certainly ongoing,
03:09
Why is a privacy program needed?
03:10
Well,
03:12
first, it can reduce the risk of a data breach,
03:15
as you probably have seen, data breaches are occurring
03:19
almost every week
03:21
all around the world.
03:23
So if your organization is breached and you have a privacy program that is mature,
03:28
the hope is
03:29
that the risk associated with said breach
03:31
is rather limited compared to someone who doesn't have a privacy program or organization who doesn't have a privacy program that's mature like yours.
03:39
It will help you comply with regulations.
03:43
I have brand enhancement and reputation management, improve value and quality of data
03:46
competitive differentiator, cross selling and direct marketing of data responsibly
03:52
and reduce risk of employee consumer lawsuits.
03:54
To me, those are all good reasons to have a privacy program
04:00
quiz. Question.
04:01
A primary responsibility of a privacy manager is to
04:05
one monitor the company's stock price to procure it equipment
04:11
Or three monitor the regulatory landscape.
04:18
Answer three Monitor The Regulatory Landscape.
04:26
