The topic of protecting personal information will grow in importance in 2019

IAPP Annual Report 2018
For those interested in the protection of personal information, the IAPP has an interesting – albeit rather hefty –¬†IAPP-EY Annual Privacy¬†Governance Report 2018, and the NTIA has released its comments from industry on pending privacy regulation. I noted that the IAPP report indicates most solutions are still almost all or entirely manual. I am not sure how this does not become a management nightmare as organizations evolve their data maturity to align operations and marketing more. Data management as a process discipline and some degree of automation are going to be critical capabilities to ensure personal information is protected. There are simply too many opportunities for error when this is done manually.¬†
I recently published an article in TDAN on automating data management and governance through machine learning. It is not just about ML, other capabilities will be required. However, as long as organizations rely on manual processes only, it opens up risk and places the burden on management to enforce policies that are often resisted as they are perceived as a burden on actually doing business. Data management as a process discipline in conjunction with automated processes will reduce operational overhead and risk.
