Surviving in a world of privacy risks

How can we best protect the data of our customers? Advancements and utilisation of technology in everyday aspects of life are increasingly putting personal privacy issues into the spotlight. Amazon’s Alexa suite of offerings has recently come under fire from the US Senate, as to why Amazon is indefinitely storing the text transcripts of people using their Alexa smart home device. The US Senate has highlighted issues around Amazon’s privacy and data security practices highlighting the Alexa devices were putting users at risk as well as any recordings that are taken in without users’ knowledge. 

This bodes the question of how much privacy do people have and how can firms ensure that any customer data used is not at risk?

Companies that utilise customer data have a duty of care in order to ensure that any privacy risks are minimised. Employees that have key roles within data privacy need to have a mindset of keeping data secure from the outset for example, how can software developers create robust systems to minimise privacy risks and the successful strategies that work.

Key Learnings from this session:

  • Effective methods for assessing and controlling privacy risks
  • Successful privacy strategies implemented by organisations and how this worked
  • Areas overlooked when considering privacy risks
  • How you can make GDPR a key component in your risk strategy

Colleague Awareness and Behavioural Change Programme
The TUI Information Security Team had the challenge of implementing a colleague Awareness and Behavioural Change programme that would embed secure behaviours across a global organisation with a wide variety of languages and cultures. Focusing on five ‘Golden Rules’ and creating a simple and fun bespoke information security campaign, TUI delivered an outstanding result. TUI demonstrated significant colleague engagement, resonating with people globally and improving knowledge that colleagues can use in their personal lives as well as at work. The programme is set to continue to convert learning into tangible action, new and lasting behaviours that will ultimately empower TUI’s colleagues to become the strongest form of defence.
