Indian Market Embracing CPOs
PRIVACY—INDIAJuly 25, 2011
"Privacy is of utmost importance to the corporate world and companies are now adding an extra hand to their top management teams--Chief Privacy Officer--to shield business secrets." That's the message in a report in The Financial Express on the importance of the CPO's role and a recent PricewaterhouseCoopers study that found an increase of 113 percent in the number of CPOs appointed in the past four years across 119 countries. Meanwhile, an Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad study focuses on "the need to reinforce privacy claims in policymaking" and to recognize "both the individual and shared value of privacy."
