Getting Your Board on Board
PRIVACYSeptember 5, 2012
In this exclusive for The Privacy Advisor, three privacy pros offer insights on how to get board or executive-level support for building strong privacy programs. Norine Primeau-Menzies, CIPP/C, recommends generating a sense of urgency and making it “fun.” Michael Spadea, CIPP/US, CIPP/E, recommends having compelling evidence for your case and connecting emotionally. “Tell a meaningful story,” he advises, adding evidence should be displayed in a “vivid, graphic and easily understandable format.” Chris Pahl, CIPP/US, CIPP/G, recommends starting small, with periodic updates to the board to keep it engaged, and inviting stakeholders to be part of the decision-making process.
