General: Privacy risk management can be from organizational policies perspective or regulatory compliance perspective. In USA, financial services industry has its privacy requirements enumerated in Graham Leach Bliley Act (GLBA). Healthcare industry has its privacy requirements in Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and later in HITECH. There are also other institutions governed by privacy acts such as FERPA for educational institutions. Regulatory requirements is the primary driving force for privacy implementations. These days, almost every organization has a Chief Privacy Officer (CPO) to oversee privacy compliance. 


Although privacy requirements are regulatory or policy oriented, their implementation is always on information systems. It is very important for IT control and risk management professionals to understand how IT controls will affect privacy compliance. 


Having 80+ countries having privacy regulations, how do you comply with all of them? The answer is Privacy by design. ISACA has introduced a new certification called CDPSE which focusses on Privacy By Design. While you are grandfathering that certification w/o passing the exam, do you really know what it is? This one day class gives you highlights of what it is about.
