Today, we celebrate international Data Privacy Day. This day reminds us of the importance of respecting privacy, safeguarding data, and enabling trust.
However, annual reminders are insufficient to drive material change, which can be seen in the effectiveness rates of one-off trainings. According to the forgetting curve theory, employees forget about 75 percent of training after just six days.1 Imagine the lack of knowledge retention for employees of organizations that only do annual privacy training.
To help you with this challenge, we are excited to re-emphasize our commitment to helping organizations build a privacy-resilient workplace with Microsoft Priva, which was announced by Vasu Jakkal, Corporate Vice President of Microsoft Security, Compliance, and Identity, last year at Ignite. Microsoft Priva is the new brand of privacy solutions provided by Microsoft moving forward. Currently, the Microsoft Priva solution offers two products:
1. Priva Privacy Risk Management: Proactively identify and remediate privacy risks arising from data transfers, overexposure, and hoarding, and empower information workers to make smart data handling decisions.
2. Priva Subject Rights Requests: Manage subject rights requests at scale with automated data discovery and privacy issues detection, built-in review and redact capabilities, and secure collaboration workflows.
Managing privacy data requires understanding the context around the data, including why information workers collect the data and the intent of use. The integration of Microsoft Priva with your day-to-day productivity tools and business applications gives organizations the power to effectively influence employees to make positive decisions on personal data handling.
