Name: Debra J. Farber
Job Title: Sr. Consultant & Product Manager, JD, CISSP, CIPP/US, CIPP/G, CIPM, CIPT
How long have you worked at TRUSTe? Just under 6 months.
What do you think are the top privacy challenges for companies? Organizations need to understand how personal data are collected, used, stored, accessed, shared, and expunged in order to identify and remediate privacy risks. However, as organizations process increasingly more data, and as business processes change over time through acquisitions, mergers, etc., it becomes incredibly challenging to understand where personal data are located within a business. Very often, attempts at developing data flow maps, which are time-consuming to create, are outdated by the time they have been drafted.
What do you like most about working at TRUSTe? Clearly, TRUSTe has been a leader in privacy for many years. I feel particularly lucky to work with such intelligent and affable coworkers. However, to me, the most exciting part about working at TRUSTe is the launch of our new Data Privacy Management (“DPM’) Platform. This technology will assist organizations with the automation of some of the most time-intensive activities: privacy workflow management, privacy impact assessments (“PIA”), up-to-date data mappings, vendor assessments, etc. I have the unique opportunity to work at TRUSTe as both a Sr. Consultant, using the Platform to advise our larger clients, and as a Product Manager, prioritizing new DPM Platform feature sets based on feedback that we receive from consulting engagements. I truly look forward to coming to the office every day!
