Next Cybersecurity, Private Clouds, Privacy: Guidance on Top 2013 Trends-6 Next

In the coming year, IT professionals will have to manage not just threats of data leakage and identity theft, but also growing consumer and employee concerns about data privacy.

“The protection of personally identifiable information (PII) is the responsibility of both organizations and individuals,” said Greg Grocholski, CISA, international president of ISACA and chief audit executive at The Dow Chemical Company. “Organizations need to have a governance structure in place to ensure that PII is managed and protected throughout its life cycle. Individuals must be aware of what PII they are providing and to whom. To be successful, data protection must be a joint effort.”

He continued, “Privacy by design, confidentiality of location-based information,  the consumerization of IT, and an increase in legislative and regulatory mandates that will drive more privacy audits are among the top 2013 trends in data privacy that ISACA anticipates will need to be addressed.”

Global nonprofit IT association ISACA recently issued guidance on managing three top trends expected to pose major challenges to businesses in 2013: cybersecurity threats, private vs. public clouds and data privacy. As part of its role as a provider of best practices and expertise, ISACA helps its 100,000 constituents worldwide navigate the shifting IT landscape in order to build trust in and value from enterprise information.
