As companies increasingly rely on digital commerce, cloud-based transactions, and universal access, data privacy compliance moves front and center for consumers, business operators, and government regulators. Indeed, the financial, health, and other protected information of your customers is an asset that must be protected.
Human error accounts for the vast majority of privacy failures.
Gone are the days when privacy threats were primarily intentional; the majority of today’s personal data insecurities come from human error, inattention, improper training and accidental oversight.
The current regulatory environment can be complicated and difficult to understand. HIPAA, GLBA, and other federal statutes require several levels of safeguarding. Furthermore, individual U.S. states also have begun to focus on regulating, reporting, and securing the exchange of personal data beyond federal requirements, for example, CCPA/CPRA, CPA, and CDPA. Adequate and ongoing workforce training and internal privacy programs are key elements of an effective data privacy compliance plan.
