The number of technology solutions available to help privacy professionals get their jobs done has exploded in recent years. With more and more stringent legal obligations to comply with every year, privacy teams need efficient and effective tools to manage data flows within their organizations, and to comply with requests for personal information from customers. So with a plethora of offerings, how to sift the wheat from the chaff? What tools are fully matured and worth their cost, and which are promising but not quite ready for real-time implementation?

In May 2018, IAPP and TrustArc surveyed 328 privacy professionals around the globe and asked them a series of questions about each of 10 categories of privacy technology, as identified in the IAPP’s annual Privacy Tech Vendor Report. The results provide illuminating benchmarking data about what technology is truly in use versus what technology is still far from mainstream. Join us for this interactive web conference to hear from the authors of the report on its most salient findings, and bring your questions as time will be provided to answer them.

What you’ll learn:

  • What technology is truly in use versus what is still far from the mainstream.
  • Which tools are better suited to reside within the privacy office rather than being housed in IT or infosec.
  • How technologies with built in security applications fare against newer privacy-office-specific solutions.
  • Which technologies are most likely to be found on major organizations’ purchase requests this year.
