Superficial Compliance

Data Privacy Act compliance goes far beyond privacy notices, much like an iceberg where the tip represents only a fraction of the whole. It requires a comprehensive approach, including a privacy program, robust security measures, informed consent, protection of individual rights, and accountability. Unfortunately, some individuals or organizations may use flawed privacy notices, indicating their lack of understanding or ignorance of privacy laws. This surface-level negligence violates individual rights and exposes the organization to potential legal repercussions. It is imperative to take prompt action before the axe falls.
