In this updated guide to privacy governance, the authors begin by providing an overview of the technological, business and regulatory developments that converge to define data as both an asset and a liability in today’s privacy landscape.
They then cover key national, regional and international privacy regimes. Finally, they provide practical advice on establishing and overseeing privacy culture, frameworks and future-oriented practice.
The book concludes with a list of key questions for directors to consider on the governance of data and privacy, and the opportunities and risks it represents from both a compliance and performance perspective.
"With the digitisation of everything, rising surveillance capitalism, intensive national security monitoring and large intelligence gathering activities, organisational boards worldwide have moved beyond seeing privacy as just a compliance line item.
The above quote is the main premise of Malcolm Crompton and Michael Trovato’s The New Governance of Data and Privacy, and the questions they are prompting directors to ask of their organisations could not be more timely:
- Have we discharged our privacy governance obligations?
- Are we treating data with the same respect as any other major class of financial asset?
- What is the value of our data, to our stakeholders and non-stakeholders?
- How do we reasonably protect and ethically use our data?
- How can we increase performance and innovate using technology?
