According to a recent survey by the ACC, privacy technology is among the top three priorities of in-house counsel to maintain defensibility. The increasing number and complexity of privacy laws, as well as the continued emergence of good privacy practices and compliant data use, have been the driving force for organizations to shift focus from compliance exercises to automated privacy solutions. To maintain consumer trust and avoid brand damage due to data breaches, your company must implement integrated data governance principles and procedures. 

Given the amount of data that businesses collect, process and store, and the speed at which that data is managed, effective and efficient human and technology systems must be implemented, updated, and maintained on a regular basis. Discover how your organization can integrate enforcement of policies like data retention, data minimization, and access requests across its IT ecosystem.

Join this webcast to understand how to maintain up-to-date data retention strategies in your privacy program. You will learn about: 

  • Existing and emerging data retention obligations.
  • The risks of failing to operationalize retention programs.
  • Creating a more collaborative process for security and privacy teams to work together.
