Building a Data Privacy Program Doesn’t Always Require Set Regulations
LAS VEGAS, Nev. – January 27, 2021 – Keyavi Data Corp., a cybersecurity trailblazer transforming the very nature of data protection, today kicked off its observance of Data Privacy Day by issuing a white paper for U.S. organizations embarking on a privacy program based on the European Union’s 2018 data privacy law known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Authored by Céline Gravelines, a cyber security analyst at Keyavi, this white paper explores an alternative approach for building a data privacy and protection program relative to the GDPR’s one-size-fits-all requirements. It also provides guidance for reducing an organization’s privacy risk when developing such a program.
“For U.S.-based organizations, understanding the GDPR’s reach and knowing which privacy regulations and laws apply can be daunting – and adopting those regulations can be even more overwhelming,” said Céline Gravelines, Keyavi’s director of professional services and cybersecurity analyst. “For many organizations, a regulation-first GDPR approach isn’t optimal for promoting a culture of data privacy and security. Instead, the focus should be on interpreting a broad set of privacy requirements, then using existing security controls to improve the organization’s privacy position.”
