Protecting Customer, Employer and Supplier Privacy
PRIVACYSeptember 15, 2010
Speaking before the CSO Security Standard, GE Chief Privacy Leader and Senior Counsel Nuala O'Connor Kelly, CIPP, began with the question of what privacy is. The answer, NetworkWorld reports, is the right and ability to control how your personal information is used. With issues ranging from the privacy implications of social networking posts by employees to the use of mobile devices for both work and personal activities, companies face significant privacy challenges. "The trick for GE is the same as it is for most organizations--how to achieve security without setting off animosity someone might feel about being violated," the report states, noting O'Connor Kelly believes GE's move to create a partnership between its legal and IT security divisions has made a significant difference.
