    CPE: 1.5

    Level: Intermediate

    Recommended Prerequisites:

    • Understanding of what personal identifying information is
    • Understanding of how data flows through an organization

    Field of Study: Specialized Knowledge

    You are accustomed to finding things out and looking for the weaknesses in a system. Often those weaknesses must be matched to internal controls or regulatory schemes to assess the adequacy of compliance. Whether the commodity under study is money, inventory or data, the principles are the same: get granular, develop a thorough understanding of every part of the system and be prepared to identify how well the commodity in question is secured.

    This session will familiarize you with the very different privacy regulatory schemes in the U.S. and the European Union, Privacy Shields, the GDPR, the data lifecycle, and other privacy principles. It will also review the role of the Chief Privacy Officer (CPO), how a CPO interacts with other personnel in the organization and how to survive in a digital privacy world where the rules keep changing and the risks keep growing.

    You Will Learn How To:

    • Identify the function of the Chief Privacy Officer
    • Identify how the skills of a CFE are a natural preparation for being a CPO
    • Determine the basics of privacy regulatory schemes in the United States and elsewhere
    • Recall the data lifecycle
    • Recognize how to survive as a CPO
