Analyzing and Choosing a Digital Framework for Your Business
Data Governance. Cyber Governance. Privacy Governance. Your Business! You know you need one (or is it two?), but what applies when? How do you choose? Once you choose, how do you get it “right”?
This presentation will focus on the “Why care” aspect of frameworks, and provide an overview into the types, how to choose and implement them. The information can benefit an organization just starting on this journey, or bring additional insight into a mature framework, and help to answer the question of is it still right for my organization today.
By understanding the type of frameworks available, and how they help improve an organization from data protection to building trust, meeting compliance needs or ensuring privacy and applying that knowledge to the unique needs of business you will have a better understanding of what frameworks are important to your culture and organization.
What makes this course unique?
The panel brings a unique lens on Government and Private partnerships. Frameworks allow unique entities to have a common understanding and language so they can communicate and operate with clarity. By using the right frameworks, an organization can convey a message of assurance to their partners, supply chain and customers.

Three types of cybersecurity frameworks
Overview of what frameworks exist
What to consider when choosing a framework
