Customer and employee concerns over personal information and breaches in data protection can inhibit organisational change, impact technology integration, increase legal liability and lead to corporate reputation damage.
Privacy issues present a growing challenge as organisations must interpret and comply with complex and diverse international laws and regulations on how they handle personal information. Legislation and mounting public pressure requires organisations to establish appropriate policies and procedures to protect the various forms of data that are part of their business operations.
Deloitte has developed a risk-based approach and methodology to help organisations evaluate, design and implement a privacy program and solution that is scalable and sustainable. This approach identifies and focuses on privacy and data protection issues that represent either the highest risk or the highest return on investment. It also ensures flexibility and focus to address local, unique privacy requirements on a case-by-case basis.
