Key Considerations of a Data Protection, Information Risk Management and Compliance Program

Effectively managing data, information risk and compliance is complex and ever-changing. There are many components and considerations in developing and implementing a robust program that encompasses and integrates all the elements needed to manage this risk and achieve one’s compliance objectives effectively. Many organizations believe selecting their information risk management framework is the most complicated part of the process, and although important, it is just the beginning.

In developing an information risk and compliance program, there are many considerations in addition to selecting the most appropriate framework:

  • Aligning with third-party risk management approach
  • Aligning threats to security controls
  • Measuring the effectiveness of implementation
  • Reporting your program’s approach to management and third parties
  • Sharing control responsibilities with service providers
  • Integrating information risk and compliance controls into an assessment tool
