During the workshop, privacy officers will learn: key concepts of accountable privacy management, a new process for privacy management self-assessments, and three privacy management program strategies (Managed Privacy Strategy, Advanced Privacy Strategy, Demonstrating Accountability, and Compliance Strategy).
The series of 36 worldwide workshops will be held in the following locations:

New York, NY
San Francisco, CA
Mexico City, Mexico
Saõ Paolo, Brazil

For individuals that cannot attend one of the scheduled workshops in person, video recordings will be made available.
These free workshops will allow Nymity to help privacy offices take an accountability approach to ongoing demonstrable compliance, which we believe is an outcome of an effective privacy management program. I would like to thank our hosts for providing the facilities to make this possible.” said Terry McQuay, President and Founder, Nymity Inc.
Attendees will receive an Accountability Status Workbook to help them effectively communicate the status of privacy management in their organization and build a business case to justify investment in the necessary resources to take their privacy management programs to the next level. During these interactive workshops participants will gain insight into how other organizations are dealing with the issues related to their region’s unique compliance requirements and develop a network of peers with similar experiences.
The workshops are open to all privacy officers responsible for privacy management in their organization. All workshops will run from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Maximum enrollment varies by location. Workshops will be conducted in English with the exception of select locations in Latin America, where they will be conducted in Spanish.
These accountability workshops are the result of many years of Nymity’s cumulative research efforts. Nymity’s long-term commitment to furthering data privacy management and accountability best practices began in 2002, when Nymity began its research to help organizations implement and maintain effective privacy management programs in order to achieve ongoing compliance and accountability. In 2009, Nymity expanded its research to help organizations demonstrate accountability and compliance.
