IT needs to gain a seat at the risk management table.

  • Manufacturing IT feels less confident in its risk management effectiveness. IT has historically been excluded from risk conversations in this sector.
  • OT and IT organizations often focus their attention within silos and miss the big picture needed for a synergistic approach regarding privacy and data protection practices.
  • Budgets are strained and high-level skills are difficult to find and keep. Many manufacturers lack the expertise to manage data privacy risks effectively.

Help organizations establish and operationalize a robust privacy program.

  • Document privacy requirements and establish privacy governance structure.
  • Identify privacy program gap areas.
  • Identify and prioritize gap initiatives.
  • Complete the privacy program roadmap.
