Who should attend

Professionals in all functional areas who access or have employees that can access and utilize customer/consumer information (data), especially personally identifiable information and the insights gained from big data analytics. All business types, sizes and industries are welcome.

About the course

One of the biggest drivers of our complex global economy is the sheer amount of data generated and collected every day. As the amount of data continues to increase, companies are investing in a myriad of technology data warehouses to collect, store, manage and analyze the data within their organization. Savvy analytics can provide powerful insight into a company’s customer base and company performance, enabling them to anticipate needs, customize products and adjust to market forces in real time. As a result, big data creates big competitive advantage. However, big data also creates a level of risk and liability. Safeguarding data often lies within IT, or Legal or Compliance departments, but internal and external threats make data privacy and security a critical priority for all managers. This program addresses privacy and security strategy considerations and implications that everyone needs to know.

  • What is Big Data - Overview
  • The benefits and risk of Big Data use
  • Privacy Fundamentals, Regulations, Laws and Enforcement Agencies
