Welcome to module to privacy strategy and program.
role of the privacy manager
during this video will explore what it means to be a privacy manager and understand the goals and functions of a privacy program
responsibilities of the privacy manager include
identify privacy obligations for the organization, identify business employee and customer privacy risks
and identify existing documentation and implement policies.
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
responsibilities of the privacy manager
further include awareness and training, incident response, privacy controls and monitoring privacy impact assessments,
development of staff design and production management, vendor management metrics and audit cross border data transfers
and monitor legislative change.
Now it's important to note that a privacy manager may not be conducting all of these functions. However,
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.
What is the privacy program management
privacy program management?
According to the International Association of Privacy professionals
and one of our suggestion readings
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.
The goal of our privacy program,
promote consumer trust and confidence, enhance the organization's reputation, facilitate program awareness, respond to privacy breaches and monitoring, maintain the program
sounds easy. Right?
Well, this course we're going to go through all the facets needed to make sure that you're checking these boxes
functions included in privacy program
information security, information technology, application development, communications procurement, internal audit learning and training, human resources, marketing, finance and accounting.
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,
I added finance and accounting
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
to run your program at least for the first few years, getting it off the ground and certainly ongoing,
Why is a privacy program needed?
first, it can reduce the risk of a data breach,
as you probably have seen, data breaches are occurring
almost every week
all around the world.
So if your organization is breached and you have a privacy program that is mature,
the hope is
that the risk associated with said breach
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.
It will help you comply with regulations.
I have brand enhancement and reputation management, improve value and quality of data
competitive differentiator, cross selling and direct marketing of data responsibly
and reduce risk of employee consumer lawsuits.
To me, those are all good reasons to have a privacy program
A primary responsibility of a privacy manager is to
one monitor the company's stock price to procure it equipment
Or three monitor the regulatory landscape.
Answer three Monitor The Regulatory Landscape.
