Appropriate oversight on privacy and data governance is vital for boards of any size.
To ensure your board has the right tools to navigate legal and ethical governance requirements, we’ve created an Introductory Board Governance and Data Protection Kit covering:
- Board Members’ Conflict of Interest Policy;
- Data Retention and Protection Policy;
- Data Breach Policy and Incident Response Plan;
- Whistleblowing Policy; and
The Board Members’ Conflict of Interest Policy establishes clear guidelines and procedures for identifying, disclosing and managing conflicts of interest for employees and directors.
The policies relating to data retention and data breaches include straightforward steps on how you can manage data in line with privacy laws, identify different categories of data and their specific legal retention periods and a step-by-step guide on how to effectively respond and manage a data breach.
