Organisations are expected to revise their privacy policies by the end of next year

Organisations are expected to revise their privacy policies by the end of next year.

According to Gartner, data breaches, cloud computing, location-based services and regulatory changes will force virtually all organisations to review or revise their current privacy policies before the end of next year.

Carsten Casper, research director at Gartner, 2010 said that new threats to personal data and privacy are emerging while budgets for privacy protection remained under pressure. He said: “Throughout 2011 and 2012, privacy programmes will remain chronically underfunded, requiring privacy officers to build and maintain strong relationships with corporate counsel, lines of business, HR, IT security, IT operations and application development teams.
