Osterman Research: Privacy Compliance in North America
Privacy regulations have become a key tool for regulators and governments to force organizations to pay more attention to the data collected, processed, stored, and shared on individuals—much of it gained through new ubiquitous digital channels. In the United States:
- Two thirds of organizations are subject to three or more privacy regulations
- Less than half of organizations are currently fully compliant with all applicable and enforced privacy regulations
- Three out of five organizations have experienced one or more types of data breaches of personal, sensitive, or confidential data in the past 12 months
Sponsored by Mimecast, this paper from Osterman Research details the emergence of new privacy regulations, how organizations are responding and best practices to reduce your risk.
