Privacy is just one of the risk concerns (albeit an important one) for businesses, governments and other organizations relating to data, information and identity flows. Privacy Impact Assessments (PIA) are a common practice to identify and reduce privacy risks. Therefore it should be very helpful to examine PIAs in the context of the broader range of risk issues arising from the convergence of the digital and analog worlds. This is particularly important since the concepts of potential negative "privacy" impacts and the deployment of resources to address them are typically viewed by large institutions in the context of overall related information-usage risks.
For example, a bank needs to balance privacy with identity veracity to protect accounts, a hospital needs to balance privacy with safety of delivery of care to the correct patient, etc. In either case, other risks are balanced with privacy risks by entities to determine actual actions and behaviors.
KuppingerCole´s Fellow Analysts Dr. Scott David, LL.M and Dr. Karsten Kinast, LL.M will introduce you to the concept of expanding PIAs to a "Risk Impact Assessment" concept, providing a 360 degrees view on digital risk.
With a huge amount of data around, cloud migration is the ideal solution today. A necessary stage in migrating data to the cloud is putting it in order. This is particularly important when it comes to unstructured, so-called dark data: files and documents that are undermanaged (excel files of budget estimates, PDFs containing important patents, Word documents containing personal employee or customer information), in general the data that is not managed in an orderly fashion such as structured database which is easily governed. Usually, this kind of data that tends to be misplaced, misused, abandoned, hacked, or leaked, in the cloud and local server repositories putting enterprises at risk.
Blockchain is still on everyone’s lips and the 2019 can be the year when large enterprises finally embrace the distributed ledger technology. KuppingerCole's inaugural blockchain-themed event will go beyond the hype and will present you real use cases and applications for your enterprise. Blockchain Enterprise Days (#BeDays19) will take place on September 18-19, 2019 in Frankfurt, Germany.
