Afternoon Breakout Session 3 | Big Data and the Compliance Challenge: Managing Sensitive Information and Privacy

Compliance has a growing set of responsibilities, extending far beyond the traditional anti-corruption, FCPA, and other concerns that can potentially plague the company.  The uncertainties around the protection of sensitive Big Data have emerged into one of the greatest vulnerabilities for any company, and compliance leaders are grappling with the best approach and their own responsibility for managing Big Data. But professionals need to know how to identify sensitive enterprise, customer, and third party information first, especially as it may reside in the cloud or warehoused through databases not easily identified.  To make matters even more complex, global companies also need to contend with region or country-specific privacy laws to ensure alignment with those rules and regulations.  This session will offer insight into emerging challenges that Big Data presents compliance and business leaders and offer best practices to ensure that essential processes are in place at your company to identify and safeguard the information.
