Understanding how a company has changed over the years is a key indicator of individual professional growth potential when considering joining the company.

Top 3 Signs Of A Maturing Company With Growth Potential
  • Reinvention—if an organization goes through reinvention it is a sign of maturity. Doing the same thing time and time again will likely mean growth is limited in that industry or company.
  • Surrounded by Promotions—if others you interview with are in their current positions as the product of promotion, it is a sign of maturity. This is also a sign you can get promoted one day too!
  • Add2Staff—if the positions around you are add-to-staff hires, as opposed to replacements, it is a sign of maturity – and a great thing to know going into an interview for a job!

There is a difference between a controller and a processor in data privacy. A controller is the person (or business) who determines the purpose for which the personal data is processed; the processor is anyone that processes the personal data on behalf of the data controller.

Top 3 Takeaways From The IAPP Global Summit 2018, Part Two
  • Federal agencies are adding privacy programs into their information system development lifecycle using the Risk Management Framework, which is basically a data map of system information flows and information security protocols tied in with privacy risk analysis.
  • Companies must view the replacement of the 1995 standards with the new GDPR standards as an opportunity to develop and implement data governance, protection and privacy within the companies’ and consumers’ expectations. There are four big points: segment (initial screening), controls assessments (documentation), ongoing monitoring (audits and risk-based monitoring), and remediation (restricted limitations, scheduled improvements, and geographic limitations).
  • Bank CPOs are constantly met with new challenges and must work within legal/regulatory compliance, risk management, etc. It's crucial for CPOs to have an open line of communication with CISOs during data decisions, rather than enter the picture when there is already a major incident response.

There are 38,000 data privacy professionals across the globe but the scope of the GDPR will require 75,000 or more.

Top 3 Ways To Fill The Privacy Gap
  • As of this past February, the ABA is now recognizing Privacy as a specialty law practice—the ABA has only recognized 15 in history. This is a big win for the IAPP and shows how serious people are about the growth of the industry.
  • Privacy professionals need to be created rather than found as there are not enough professionals to fill the gap. Peter Lefkowitz, Director of the IAPP and Chief Privacy & Digital Risk Officer at Citrix, made the suggestion to search laterally within compliance, legal, and security divisions for candidates to train internally and through the IAPP.
  • The IAPP is launching privacy engineering workshops for hands-on technical info security engineers.
