Benchmarking Businesses’ Privacy Framework: Highlights from the 2019 IAPP-EY Annual Privacy Governance Report

IAPP and EY published their fifth annual Privacy Governance Report (Report) last week. The authors of the Report surveyed companies across the globe to determine privacy governance trends. The Report aims to understand the structure of businesses’ privacy programs (e.g., budget, staffing, career development), measure privacy compliance efforts (this year, with a focus on compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation) and identify recent trends in the daily routines of privacy and data protection professionals.

We have published a useful summary that highlights the following topics of the Report: the role of the board of directors in privacy governance, the types of issues reported to the board, the privacy role and responsibilities within businesses, the management of third-party vendors, and the types of data subject requests that organizations receive.
