On our last webinar (as of this writing) I discussed how a company can handle data subject’s rights requests under GDPR. Many of these requests are going to require attention, such as those ‘right to be forgotten’ requests. Others may seem daunting but can be handled easily and may not require any direct participation from your end. Continue reading this post…Posted on March 8, 2018 by Ben Siegel - No Comments
Security metrics are somewhat of an enigma. Executives want something tangible to speak to and analyze yet they are not easy to define or measure. Most likely you will hear examples such as ‘number of laptops stolen’ or ‘number of servers with known vulnerabilities’, but what do those numbers mean? Why do we or should we care about them? Yes, they will help to indicate areas of risk or improvement, possible ROI, but before you start the never-ending process of defining security metrics, it is beneficial to understand your organization’s security level of maturity by utilizing CMMI maturity levels.
Let me begin by saying that the following text is intentionally ridiculous. I want to illustrate a point recently made about the upcoming E-Privacy Regulation, specifically related to direct marketing.
Imagine one day, President Trump is in France for a summit to discuss some topic of relevance to the international community. He grabs a diet coke and heads over to his monitor to watch a stream of his favorite informative news on Fox & Friends. Little does he know that lying in wait for him is a piece of targeted marketing specifically aimed towards him.

As we work with clients to prepare them for GDPR we deeply dive into data subjects’ rights. When we cover the right to erasure, the same question comes up, “what about backups?”
After a long trip from the northeast to San Diego, I finally made it to another exciting Privacy, Security, and Risk Conference from the IAPP. With GDPR on the horizon, the air was thick with discussion of this regulation in effect in May of next year. Even more so, a lot of questions received at the Privacy Ref booth were focused on this law, or preparing a privacy program through assessments data mapping. Overall, a great show with a few major themes. Continue reading this post…Posted on October 30, 2017 by Ben Siegel - No Comments

Recently, I had dinner with a colleague that I had not seen in several years. Their company, a multinational with global operations, had undergone several changes in that time. When the dust settled, this friend had been tapped as “privacy manager”. Along with corporate counsel (part time for privacy), they decided that, even under GDPR, they did not need a Privacy / Data Protection Officer . Huh?
