Privacy is quickly becoming the compliance issue facing all business regardless of size or industry. In the next few years, how businesses collect, use, store, share and ultimately dispose of personal information about customers and employees will become intensely scrutinized by governments, the courts, trade groups and the public. “By 2015, 50% of large organizations worldwide will be subject to privacy audits required by law or following self-regulatory pressure, up from 5% today,” according to Gartner, Inc.*
To prepare for new privacy requirements, evaluate compliance with existing privacy laws and evaluate risks of privacy breach, organizations must begin by developing a personal data inventory or PDI. The PDI identifies what personal data a company maintains, where it exists in the organization, the processes that manage personal data and how long it needs to be retained. “We appreciate Gartner’s recognition of Jordan Lawrence’s ability to identify personal data,” said Marty Provin Executive Vice President of Jordan Lawrence. “Our unique, web-based solution codifies our consulting experience with our vast industry benchmarking.
