Privacy Policy

Organizational Privacy Compliance

Information Protection

In today’s fast-paced business environment, both commercial and governmental entities are striving to gather personal information. Some of this data gathering is arguably necessary to better serve the client, the employee, and the public. In any case, there is an expectation on the part of the public and/or customer that any collected data will be protected and handled in a manner that does not violate an individual’s personal privacy. If people believe their personal data is not properly safeguarded, or is used in a way that violates their expectation of privacy, organizational reputation and/or business may suffer. In the worst case scenario, a privacy violation may prompt the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to investigate and levy a fine. Organizations are also required to comply with established legal statute in this space, such as the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).

Privacy & Safeguards

Aerstone understands the importance of protecting information. We recognize that properly guarding information from a privacy standpoint requires more than just a secure network. In order to ensure protection and proper transparency, organizations must consider the type of data being collected, who has access to this data, and how it will be used throughout the data lifecycle. To accomplish this goal, it is important to have directives, policies, and guidelines in place that are both effective in maintaining data privacy against current compliance requirements, as well as sufficiently agile to adapt to future trends and issues. Having a proper privacy policy in place makes it easier for employees to understand how to implement the necessary privacy safeguards.

Incident Mitigation

Putting a well-crafted privacy policy in place, and educating employees on how to follow proper data handling procedures, will certainly reduce the chance of a data spill. Potential risk may also be mitigated through requirements such as collection limitation, retention periods, and auditing. In addition, as system assessments and data collections are monitored, the required protections and notices can be updated at the appropriate times to maintain user or customer confidence. Finally, a well-crafted privacy policy also addresses assessment and mitigation steps in the event of a data breach. It has been proven repeatedly that having the necessary compliance guidance in place makes it easier for organizations to respond properly to incidents.
