Data privacy: Accountability in Practice
With the advancement of digital technology, companies are able to sweep up large amounts of data on consumers and their activities. The availability of these data enables organizations to create and capture new value, for example by offering more customised products or services to their customers. Simultaneously, there is a growing awareness and concern about privacy protection: privacy regulations have been expanding in the EU as well as globally, enforcement and sanctions for data breaches are ever-increasing, and many companies consider the development of a privacy compliance policy as a strategic investment.
In this “We Invite for You”, Michael Scuvée, director Global Data Privacy at Johnson Controls, highlights the opportunities and risks associated with the use of (sensitive) customer data by companies. During this session, Michael will highlight some do’s and don’ts with regard to privacy regulations. Moreover, he will touch upon on the different perspectives on privacy in the US vs. the European Union and several important regulatory aspects such as data transfer restrictions. Michael will also focus on the development and roll-out of privacy programs and accountability frameworks within companies. This session aims to provide insights in what it means for companies to balance privacy and opportunities in a data-driven world.
