Data Privacy has become the focus of governments, both foreign and domestic.  Privacy legislation approved in Europe is quickly spreading to the United States. This legislation mandates those collecting certain data secure it and provides significant penalties for non-compliance.

Those attending the January 28th event will hear about actions the Commonwealth is taking to further improve the privacy of the data collected by state government. Also, will hear from a privacy attorney on the legal aspects affecting organizations that collect and manage customer data.

The Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) chief privacy executive presents a case study on how Data Lifecycle Management can improve your privacy program.  Finally, experts from the private sector will share best practices that can benefit organizations when developing privacy organizations or programs.

Please join us to celebrate national Privacy Day, hear from experts on the impact on your organization and network with those confronted with the same challenges.

** A light lunch will be provided. If your organization’s policy precludes you from accepting lunch at free events, there will be a collection jar. The value of the lunch is $5.

State and international privacy laws are increasingly requiring that businesses understand and be able to manage their data in order to respond to consumer privacy rights and meet business privacy obligations. An effective data lifecycle management (DLM) process helps support regulatory compliance, business goals, and reduce risk associated with handling consumer data. This presentation will focus on DLM as a policy-based approach to managing the flow of information through the lifecycle from creation to final disposition, providing a holistic approach to the processes, roles, controls and measures necessary to organize and maintain data.
