Organizational practices in the digital age are inevitably linked to the processing of data and built upon the systems that support these efforts. Collectively, cybersecurity and privacy professionals are responsible for guiding and implementing organizational decisions that ensure data is collected, processed, protected and shared consistent with evolving norms. As technologies, threats, and regulations continue to shift, privacy and security functions benefit from an increased awareness of each other’s activities, priorities and goals.
This white paper explores how the roles of privacy and cybersecurity professionals are becoming increasingly interdependent, and compares the challenges faced by both professions. The paper further describes the professionalization of the data stewardship fields and determines why data stewardship requires privacy and security familiarity.
