Data Privacy is an increasingly important issue for organisations. EU legislation will impose penalties of up to 5% of global turnover for any organisation processing data about EU citizens. There are 101 data privacy laws world wide, and growing.

Traditional "silo" approaches that see privacy as an issue for legal are not effective in a global data privacy context. However, as Regulators look to risk based models, it is increasingly the case that Data Governance and Information Quality principles and practices are coming to the fore as mechanisms to support compliance and enable proactive privacy risk management.

Learners will get insights into: 1) Data Privacy as a quality characteristic of information 2) "Connect the dots" thinking that links Data Privacy to Data Governance and Information Quality practices 3) Common core principles and practices from global data privacy laws 4) Specific issues arising from laws based on the European Union's Data Privacy laws
