Why Read This Report

Protecting customers' privacy is an increasing priority for companies around the world. But data privacy standards differ widely from one country to the next — in fact there are at least 111 variations globally. The challenge for security and privacy professionals is to protect their customers' personal data following laws and expectations without paralyzing the business with over-segmentation and lockdown of company systems. The Forrester Privacy Maturity Model helps companies assess the effectiveness of their privacy practices according to the controls that matter most to customers and regulators. The model covers four domains: oversight, technology, process, and people. It provides S&R and privacy pros with guidance to meet local data privacy requirements and helps them determine the components of a strong privacy standard that they can use as a level playing field across geographies.
