About The Book

Privacy. It’s the inescapable issue as accelerating digital trends transform the world. Privacy and cybersecurity are related but not identical. Both are subject to regulations and compliance requirements involving much more than legal or IT to-do lists. Untangling these critical concepts—and the practical actions that must follow—is a daunting task. Privacy, Regulations, and Cybersecurity: The Essential Business Guide makes it possible to understand what all the privacy talk really means and what to do about it.

This book introduces readers to the concept of privacy, both from a commonsense perspective and from a legal perspective. Doing business today means data proliferates far and wide, faster than we can keep up with. Technology and business landscapes change so rapidly we might not know who has (or needs) access to what. Privacy leaks can lead to perilous situations; further, international regulations now recognize our customers and stakeholders have a fundamental right to privacy. As author Chris Moschovitis demonstrates, our cybersecurity programs need to be oriented toward privacy and regulation.

The author also shows us how to accomplish that intimidating goal in practical terms. This book—a sequel to his bestselling Cybersecurity Program Development for Business—covers which regulations apply in which regions, how they relate to the end goal of privacy, and how to build privacy into both new and existing cybersecurity programs. Readers learn how to apply lessons from Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other landmark laws to remain compliant and even get ahead of the privacy curve.

Privacy and cybersecurity are about protecting what’s of value to our companies and our stakeholders. It’s time for businesses of all sizes and in all industries to look privacy in the face. Privacy, Regulations, and Cybersecurity is the perfect place to start.
