About the Webinar

Historically, data privacy has been looked at primarily as a compliance effort. But this approach to privacy can be costly and inefficient. Instead of rushing to comply with regional regulations like the CCPA and GDPR, using an industry-respected framework to build a unified privacy program can reduce costs, effectively manage risk, and support compliance initiatives without duplicating efforts. 

In this webinar, Chris Jurs, VP of our Data Privacy practice, and Donel Martinez, a Director in our Risk Consulting group, discuss practical ways organizations can leverage the NIST Privacy Framework to build an enterprise-wide privacy strategy.

Designed for privacy, audit, and compliance professionals, this conversation looks at how the NIST Privacy framework can help you:

  • Assess your current privacy program
  • Build a single enterprise-wide privacy strategy
  • Effectively operationalize your privacy strategy
  • Monitor and maintain your privacy program
