Data Privacy Organization Efficacy in Today’s Regulatory Landscape

Solomon Williams headshot

Solomon Williams

Director, EDM Solutions; AVP, Data Management

Datasource Consulting, an EXL Company

Data privacy and data security are two separate, but inextricably linked disciplines. We have seen several new compliance regulations in recent years, and with each enacted regulation, data privacy becomes more complex. Data security is often spoken of synonymously with data privacy; though related, data security serves a related, but distinct function. Additionally, the spend for data security tools has been in steady increase over the past several years, but with the increased attention on data privacy, that number has recently increased several fold.

In today’s session, we will examine:

  • The fundamental differences between data privacy and data security
  • The evolving area of data privacy regulations
  • How to best address this new paradigm
  • The cost impact of data privacy and data security measures
