Privacy and Data Management

Note from the editor

The price of privacy violations is going up. 

As the U.S. awaits a federal comprehensive data privacy law — with no bill in sight — government watchdogs like the Federal Trade Commission are catching up. 

Companies are adding chief data and privacy officers to their leadership in an effort to insulate from potential privacy violations. In addition to privacy oversight, companies are reassessing where and how they store data. 

This report details the evolution of privacy and data management, including: 

  • How privacy violation fines are calculated

  • Case studies in data management

  • Reevaluating how data is stored and used

As the U.S. works to mirror the progress of the European Union's General Data Privacy Regulation, businesses can expect to see more critical evaluations of current privacy standards and data authority.
