Privacy and compliance teams are under increasing pressure to respond quickly to urgent issues. Whether from senior leadership, regulators, consumers, shareholders, or other stakeholders, the pressure after a cyber or other event can be intense. Pressure is equally high to be prepared for potential incidents. What steps can a company take to have a program that is effective and right-sized to its operations? How can it best prepare for the increasing external, unknown, and uncontrollable risks? Drawing from change and risk management research, this session will share some lessons learned and strategies to help you make the most of your privacy compliance program.
