September 26, 2007
Why Read This Report
Global organizations are struggling to uniformly and cohesively protect private data as well as comply with international regulations on data privacy and data transfer. Forrester interviewed chief privacy officers (CPOs) of global organizations to understand how they've solved common problems and what practices are most effective. They told us that globalizing the privacy program is an important step to ensure consistent data protection via standardized policies and privacy-aware employees. Global CPOs recommend: 1) expanding the scope of your privacy program by creating a central privacy organizational structure; 2) designing your privacy policies to meet the highest possible standards; and 3) assessing your organizational processes for privacy compliance on a regular schedule.
