Nymity Book

Demonstrating accountability is more than reporting, even more than reporting with evidence. It is the ability to show that a privacy program is managed and monitored.

The ultimate goal of the privacy office in many organizations is to be able to answer the question, ‘how do we know that the privacy program is effectively embedded throughout the organization?’, in other words, to be accountable and to be able to demonstrate it.  This book is a guide for the privacy office to demonstrate accountability using the free framework - Nymity Data Privacy Accountability Scorecard™ - available in the free Demonstrating Accountability Toolkit.
