Description

The fear that comes along with new compliance requirements, especially something as big as GDPR or CCPA, is overwhelming for many organizations. They don’t know where to start, what to fix, or what an auditor expects to see. How do auditors do it? How do they test an organization’s privacy practices? In this session, learn what an auditor’s perspective is on the newest security and privacy regulations, how your business can prepare for compliance, and what the audit looks like from their perspective.

As more and more data privacy laws become law, overlap, and are required of organization, it can become overwhelming for many organizations. They don’t know where to start, what to fix, or what an auditor expects to see. In this session, privacy expert Mark Hinely will give organizations four actions to start with when working towards their privacy compliance efforts – privacy policies, data mapping, vendor compliance, and documentation review. These areas will help organizations understand what kind of data they collect, where it goes, and what role they play in the process.

Most people don’t get to learn about what an auditor does during a privacy engagement, how they perform testing, or what they’re looking for. In this session, learn from a full-time auditor and hear his perspective on the newest security and privacy regulations, how your business can prepare for compliance, and what the audit looks like from the other side.
