Technology Readiness Assessment

for Safeguarding Customer Data

Answer a few simple questions

In less than 15 minutes, you can gain a much richer idea of your greatest opportunities for safeguarding your customers’ data and take your first step toward a long-term strategy.

This Technology Readiness Assessment will help you analyze your current technology infrastructure and begin to outline an IT strategy for meeting a wide variety of in-force and emerging customer privacy regulations (e.g., GDPR, China’s new Cybersecurity Law, CCPA [California Consumer Privacy Act], the NYDFS Cybersecurity Regulations [23 NYCRR 500], and more).

Your results will be presented in a visual manner, outlining eight use cases where technology can play the greatest role in helping you protect your customers’ privacy. These use cases will be ranked on a sliding scale to help you determine your organization’s roadmap for meeting these requirements over the long run.*

Use cases generally fall into one of three categories

Governance

Governance

"Governance" measures the processes for the appropriate discovery, collection, storage, processing, and securing of personal data. It starts with an "inventory" of the data and then sets the rules and policies the organization will enforce in order to protect this data through its lifecycle.

Data lifecycle management

Data lifecycle management

"Data lifecycle management" measures the organization’s ability to apply and enforce the policies set in the governance stage, as well as deliver access to certain information, consistent with privacy regulations, for use in legal, compliance, and business-related activities.

Security

Security

"Security" measures an organization’s ability to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of personal data. Besides data protection, it also analyzes the operational capabilities to deliver data breach notifications (as well as data breach prevention) by means of application security testing and enforcement of data processing applications, systems, and services from their design to production stages.

*This Technology Readiness Assessment will provide you with use cases ranked by order of priority based on your inputs. Priorities naturally evolve over time, so we recommend that you revisit these priorities regularly so that your strategies evolve along with your needs and requirements.
