DATA PROTECTIONDecember 14, 2012
As part of the Global Accountability Project, the Hunton & Williams Centre for Information Policy Leadership has released an accountability self-assessment tool, reports Hunton & Williams’ Privacy and Information Security Law Blog. “In collaboration with experts…we’ve outlined the key elements of a sound program to help organizations take the concrete steps necessary to be accountable,” said Marty Abrams, the centre’s president. As accountability plays a larger role in legislation, “The results of the survey may be useful in demonstrating to regulators and other interested constituencies the design of an organization’s privacy program,” added Paula Bruening, vice president of Global Policy at the Centre.
