Session Overview

Large-scale data breaches are increasingly in the public eye; consumer trust in brands is faltering, creating a surge in data and privacy protection discussions from the Boardroom to the front lines. The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect in May 2018 and breach-reporting amendments to the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) come into force on November 1, 2018. What does this mean for your organization when it comes to protecting an individual’s personal data?

In this session we’ll discuss how to build an effective privacy program, one that ensures compliance and provides value to the organization. Examine leading best practices in mitigating breaches and explore the opportunities and challenges posed when auditing privacy program compliance.

Session Highlights

1. Learn about the components and structure of an effective privacy program. Benchmark your organization’s existing privacy monitoring activities against leading best practices in the industry.

2.  Deep dive on the auditors’ role in identifying issues and managing privacy risks. Participate in a privacy program audit simulation, determining effective metrics in testing privacy compliance.

3.  Through case studies, explore the opportunities and challenges posed in auditing privacy program compliance.
