The State of Privacy and Personal Data Protection, 2020-2022

“The state of privacy” is published in 18-month intervals to provide a two-year strategic outlook as well as the operational capabilities organizations will need to deliver and exceed growing regulatory and societal demands.

Recommendations

To treat technology, information and resilience risk, security and risk management leaders should:
  • Incorporate the demands of a rapidly evolving privacy landscape into the organization’s data strategy by developing a common baseline driven by applicable regulatory guidelines and privacy frameworks outlined in this research.
  • Adopt key capabilities that support increasing volume, variety and velocity of personal data by putting in place a three-stage technology-enabled privacy program.
  • Accept, adapt and evolve with the new business challenges to privacy by leading with a cost-optimized set of privacy capabilities.
