The United States lags behind Europe and Canada in privacy protection, however, this is changing with the inception of HITECH which extends HIPAA's reach to many more entities. In addition, stringent laws are being enforced in states like California and Massachusetts. Now more than ever organizations must show due care around protection of individual privacy.
In this session learn how to build a comprehensive data protection program by understanding:
1. Privacy and security principles: What is privacy and how is it different from security, how do they interact, and why privacy principles matter to businesses.
2. Drivers for privacy and security: Data use and governance and the regulatory environment.
3. Executing a data protection program: What is data protection and how to execute a privacy impact assessment.
4. The top five areas of improvement for privacy programs and privacy management technologies.
