Privacy governance: why?
It is not easy to get a grip on all the ways in which personal data are processed in your organisation. If you wish to treat the privacy of personal details with proper care, your organisation will have to be prepared accordingly. This requires a well-structured and programmatic approach. A privacy governance programme will help your organisation deal with privacy and personal data protection in a consistent and coordinated manner. You may choose to use a privacy governance programme to demonstrate that your organisation deals with personal details in a responsible manner (accountability).
