In a recent session of The Privacy Collective focused on reporting privacy metrics to the board, Judy Titera, Chief Privacy Officer at USAA, shared her thoughts on measuring performance for continued success:

Metrics can help bring your maturity up. Mindfully watching data and using the data to show where we are and where we’re going.”

Judy also shares in the session, “You could be going a hundred miles an hour in the wrong direction, it helps to see what’s going on.”

“What would take hours or even days in some cases to build reports, now takes just minutes.” — AVP, Privacy

In a previous TPC session centered on digital transformation in privacy, James Van Beek, VP of Regulatory and Program Compliance at American Specialty Health, shared that benchmarking data is key when presenting to the board: 

“When I’m presenting to the board, which I do every quarter, they’re going to ask questions.

They love being able to look at how we are stacking up compared to an industry, or a related functional concern for particularly privacy.

Only recently have we been able to do that effectively. Before with our Excel spreadsheets and without a tool or access to benchmarking information, we couldn’t confidently give that kind of information. And now with the tool, we can do that. We can start to see where we’re performing against others and how we can improve that performance with additional tools, or additional changes or buy-in from the company and that is very effective.”

Accelerate privacy program maturity with integrated tools for privacy benchmarking and reporting.

Reporting can strengthen your organization’s overall privacy and security posture and identify key opportunities for improvement. Reports show not only where to improve operations internally (think furthering employee education, implementing new policies and procedures, etc.), but also where to focus efforts externally to mitigate future risk (think third party relationships failing to comply with contractual notification obligations).

Instant Reporting is a No-Brainer.
