Best Practices for Aligning CIOs, CPOs, and the Work of Their Organizations
November 29, 2007 – Halifax, Nova Scotia
Balancing business priorities, information needs, and operational efficiencies against known and potential security and privacy vulnerabilities is a challenge for any modern business. Sun Microsystems and its Chief Privacy Officer, Michelle Dennedy, have gained recognition for their work in this area, and for the best practices they have developed, implemented and refined to govern their own business activities.
The session explored the relationship between the CIO and the CPO and the strategies that can enable them to efficiently and effectively recognize and accomplish shared objectives. Ms. Dennedy shared the strategic thinking behind Sun’s best practices, and the benefits resulting from their implementation, such as the ability to reduce business risk, build greater value for stakeholders and to improve operational efficiency throughout the organization.
