    Data Privacy

Data privacy programs, designed to protect

For many organizations, information is their most valuable asset – one that they need to collect, handle, and protect with care. To comply with privacy regulations like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Canadian Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA), U.S. state privacy laws, among other privacy requirements, companies need to invest in data protection strategies by defining their policies and determining the necessary controls to protect personal information. Effective information privacy programs contain a wide range of functions, including:

  • Data and information governance
  • Information lifecycle management
  • Policies and procedures
  • Training and awareness
  • Security controls
  • Contracts, notices, inquiries, complaints, and dispute resolution
  • Breach handling and notification processes
  • Data handling procedures
