Assurance vs.

Rather than continuing to rush forward with implementing a digital transformation strategy, including privacy and security-related issues, organizations actually need to take two steps back to identify critical information management-related gaps before continuing to move forward. The first step is to automate information-related processes in conjunction with information management best practices to establish systematic controls and reporting mechanisms. The second step is to convince stakeholders that the program is effective by demonstrating positive ROI. This workshop discusses how to establish effective information assurance (IA) KPIs to successfully manage and sustain your privacy program from an IA perspective.
