Data Privacy: Questions executives should be asking

Data Privacy: Questions executives should be asking

Data privacy is a hot topic and a top priority for businesses and government agencies. To minimise risks and the amount of time it takes to meet new regulations, organisations first need to adopt a fresh mindset on navigating the risk landscape.

KPMG has developed a series of videos on data privacy including practical steps for organisations to comply with the new privacy regulations, questions executives should be asking about data privacy and what to do if you have a data breach.

Questions executives should be asking

  • Does the data privacy program align to the organisations risk appetite?
  • How does the data privacy program fit into the overall compliance program?
  • Is the personal data being collected to the value of the organisation and the customer?
  • How will my organisation respond to a data breach? 
  • Is there a robust data breach response plan and incident response plan in place? 
  • In case of a data breach, swift action is critical to limit risk to trust, liability and your brand.
