Privacy, Data Security and Information Management

As commerce and communications have become increasingly dependent upon wired and wireless computing and public and private electronic networks, global businesses must understand and manage the risks and opportunities associated with data systems and data management. A complex web of evolving privacy and data security laws and regulations now affects corporate activities and business transactions throughout the world.
