This IDC study provides chief information officers (CIOs) with a step-by-step guide to implementing effective privacy management across the enterprise. Privacy engineering is a quickly emerging field that seeks to bring technical discipline to the world of privacy management. By taking a disciplined approach to privacy, organizations can set clear goals and evaluate the effectiveness of the controls designed to achieve those objectives. This study also provides background on the importance of privacy engineering, identifies key stakeholders, lays out an implementation strategy, and provides essential guidance to technology leaders.
"Meeting privacy expectations of management and stakeholders requires a cross-functional approach with contributions from business leaders, privacy professionals, technologists, and cybersecurity teams," says Mike Chapple, adjunct analyst with IDC's IT Executive Programs (IEP).
