Integrating Data Privacy Into Your Organization’s Business Strategy: A Guide for C-Suite and Board-Level Engagement

Date / Time


This is a virtual event, accessible online and over phone. Access instructions will be provided after registration.


This is a complimentary program sponsored by FTI Consulting.

With the advent of regulations like GDPR and the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, company leaders are beginning to recognize that poor data privacy risk management can harm competitive advantage, weigh down return on investment capital and have long term erosive effects on shareholder value. However, many c-suites and corporate boards are still unclear on how involved they need to be in overarching privacy risk management decision making. Likewise, corporate risk management, legal and compliance stakeholders are unclear on how to align strategic business goals with their daily privacy risk management work. Join this panel of in-house privacy subject matter experts as they discuss strategies for aligning business strategy with privacy risk management programs.

Educational Objectives:

• Fostering board level and management awareness of privacy issues to obtain budget and drive change 
• Creating a board and c-suite ready narrative around balancing the organization’s privacy risk posture, including financial and operational risk factors such as regulatory fines, orders/injunctions and privacy-driven legal action, against strategic business goals 
• Right-sizing board level and management involvement in privacy issues and understanding necessary escalation points
• Gaining support for privacy-by-design strategies from the top down

Who would benefit most from attending this program?

Executives; board members; privacy, compliance, data protection, and cybersecurity professionals; in-house counsel.

Production and programming support is provided by the marketing services team at Bloomberg Next.
