Circle - Managing personal information

More than ever, our personal data (and that of our employees and clients) is exposed to the internet, potentially becoming vulnerable to fraud and ransom demands from malicious third parties. With the advent of Law 25, the accountability and responsibility for this information lie with the organizations that store and process it. As a result, significant penalties, potentially amounting to millions of dollars, can be imposed on offending companies. Furthermore, the secure and compliant management of personal information is now a reputational issue with potentially significant financial consequences for your organization.   Professionals, data stewards, compliance leaders, and managers, seize this opportunity to take charge of managing your organization's personal information and mitigate the associated risks.
