Level:  Introductory

To do effective data governance, analysts should preview the amount of data their organization is collecting and consider if it is all necessary information to run the business or just "nice to have" data. Today companies are collecting a variety of Personally identifiable Information (PII), combining it with location information, and using it to both personalize their own services and to sell to advertisers for behavioral marketing. This presentation explores:
  • What company data should be tagged as "sensitive" data?
  • Who within the company has access to personal data?
  • Is the company breaking any privacy laws by storing PII data?
  • Is the data secure from both internal and external hackers?
  • What happens if there is an external data breech?

Cathy Nolan has an MBA in Business Administration and 25 years’ experience as an Information Analyst. When she became a victim of fraud through the hacking of her credit card information, she began extensive investigation into identity theft and the ways companies are using personal data. Her research led to a book which describes the many ways personal information is being compromised and how the average person can protect themselves and their digital assets.
