Ensure privacy compliance consistency across channels
Privacy policies are among the first documents you put in place when launching a privacy management program in your organization. After that, they become critical to all privacy compliance efforts throughout the year. Unfortunately, they can quickly fall out of sync with your current privacy practices or changing regulations. For instance, depending on your jurisdiction’s privacy law, your company may be required to conduct a “privacy impact assessment” for any new or modified product that involves the processing of personal data. One of the requirements for achieving this is to show your privacy policies and other documentation.
Help employees understand how your business should handle customer data
With increased international pressure on companies to protect consumer privacy, it’s more important than ever to make sure employees understand what information you collect and how and why you’re using it. While privacy policies aren’t the only channel for privacy training and awareness activities, they can provide a valuable resource to anyone who needs to understand your privacy practices.
