The modern workplace is in the midst of a massive transformation. An estimated 44% of employees are currently working from home, and a recent survey reported that employers expect the number of full-time workers who remain at home permanently to triple from pre-pandemic figures. The implications of this shift has and will continue to impact policies and operations across business functions, but particularly the data privacy arena, where corporations must consider how a remote workforce impacts regulatory compliance.

General counsel have long been tasked with mitigating organizational risk, but more and more are being asked to become strategic business partners. This year saw general counsel stretch themselves in ways unimaginable prior to the events of 2020.

Emerging regulations like CCPA and GDPR have prepared us for compliance readiness – but not without challenges. The anticipated volume of Data Subject Access Requests (DSAR) coupled with vast amounts of personal data collected and stored, will make responding to regulatory deadlines far from easy.

The answer is “Data Mapping” – a crucial backbone for compliance and overall health of an organization.

An array of cloud-based workplace collaboration tools and messaging applications have become standard inside organizations around the globe. Yet many companies are unable to control the growth, management and discovery of the data within these applications. Oftentimes third parties host the data,but lack standard export workflows or preservation policies and process, making it difficult to obtain, quantify or assess. And, perhaps most importantly for those concerned with privacy, these applications are often engineered to prioritize individual user privacy, at the risk of enabling any sort of organized governance.

How can you use Data Governance to add value to the organization? Information Governance and Contract Intelligence offer multiple ways to not only reduce risk, but gain efficiencies.

Contracts, when organized and mined effectively, can reduce risk and actually create value for the organization. Attend this session to learn how to apply IG techniques and utilize your contract universe to gain efficiencies and reduce risk.

When the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) enforcement kicks in this May, responding to data subject rights will be a challenge for many large organizations. The GDPR enables EU individuals to request corporations to inquire about what personal data they have on them or even delete their personal data. Requests must be responded to promptly, within one month, leaving companies very little time to perform a task that they may not be equipped to handle. No barrier exists for citizens to enact these rights, and some countries are planning campaigns to educate the public on them in the coming year.
