Expert: Pros Should Prepare for Tight Budgets
PRIVACYAugust 9, 2011
In a Datamation article, analysts warn that privacy officers around the world should prepare to do more with less. Privacy programs will be underfunded through 2012, the analysts predict, which will require privacy officers to "build and maintain strong relationships with corporate counsel, lines of business, HR, IT security, IT operations and application development teams," said expert Carsten Casper. Key areas privacy professionals should focus on include compartmentalizing information, restricting access and encrypting data--especially data that is stored, will travel across public networks or lives on portable devices, Casper advises. He added that pros should support cloud computing initiatives, keeping privacy in mind.
