3 Steps to Achieve Data Privacy
1. Conduct an Assessment
First, conduct an assessment of your data collection practices and understand which privacy laws and regulations apply to your business.
Next, follow reasonable security measures to keep personal information safe from unauthorized access. Make sure the personal data you collect is only collected for relevant and legitimate purposes.
Lastly, don’t forget to maintain oversight of partners and vendors. If someone provides services on your behalf, you are also responsible for how they collect and use that data.
Improve Your Employee’s Privacy Habits
2. Adopt a Data Privacy Framework
Researching and adopting a privacy framework such as NIST, can help you manage risk and create a culture of privacy in your organization by building privacy into your business. NIST establishes technology, standards and metrics that the science and technology industries are encouraged to adhere to. NIST compliance is known to provide the best security practices for protecting business data, one of the most important priorities any organization can have!
