Data Privacy Regulations Demand Proper Handling and Sharing Practices
Collaboration tools make it easy for organizations to collect, store and share information about customer, patient, and employee financial information, health data, educational and career details, addresses and other personal data. They also make it easy to accidentally share, misuse and even steal that information leading to privacy compliance volitions.
Countries and regulators have enacted stringent and sweeping legislation to govern the collection, use, retention and distribution of personally identifiable information (PII) including:
- California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)
- New York Consumer Privacy Act (NYPA)
- Minnesota Government Data Practices Act (Minn. Stat. § 13)
- Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)
- Gramm-Leach Bliley Act (GLBA)
- Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA/PHI)
- Section 208
- Privacy Act
- EU – General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
- Australia – Privacy Act and Consumer Data Right (CDR)
- Canada – Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA)
- South Africa – Protection of Personal Information Act (POPI)
- Brazil – Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados (LGPD)
- Thailand – Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA)
- India – Personal Data Protection Bill 2018 (PDPB)
Violations can bring hefty penalties but the challenge of locating and adequately protecting the information is overwhelming for many organizations. With information spread throughout intranets, file shares and collaboration systems the risks to the organization and compliance officers, policy managers and executives on the hook for this responsibility is great.
