Top 5 Things the CISO Needs to Know About Data Privacy
October 15, 9-10 a.m. PST

Data security and privacy are very much intertwined. Any Chief Information Security Officer should understand the entire data security and privacy ecosystem, and how to identify potential data risk – from protecting information to keeping systems secure to being clear about their data practices. It is not enough to assume that if you have security or do good data protection, you therefore have privacy. It’s much more nuanced than that. In this webinar, which is part of the Privacy Insight

Series, you’ll hear from guest speaker Heidi Shey, Security & Risk Analyst at Forrester Research about how CISO’s should approach privacy and the top five things you need to know to ensure privacy is a key part of your armory.

New Automated Assessment Manager Now Available

blankWe’re excited to announce that our automated privacy assessment tool, Assessment Manager, is now generally available for businesses after a successful beta program. This new module, part of our Data Privacy Management Platform, will reduce man-hours needed for privacy assessments and streamline the entire process.

We recently released our Privacy Assessments Benchmarking Study, which found that large enterprises typically conduct 59 Privacy Impact Assessments (PIAs) each year. These assessments take 285 hours each! The Assessment Manager tool was created to greatly reduce the effort and hours required to conduct each assessment, as well as improve the quality and efficiency of internal privacy programs.

Also announced today, the expansion of our Privacy Content Library as a result of a new partnership with Unified Compliance Framework (UCF) to include more than 800 IT compliance controls based on international regulatory requirements, standards and guidelines.
