Prediction 2021: Data Privacy in Faith Based Organizations
The proliferation of privacy rules will drive Faith-based Organizations (FBOs) to partner with trusted providers. Why do we think that? Because data is the most important asset of faith-based organizations and it is now critical for faith-based organizations to select providers able to manage evolving data categories and protection protocols which may include online behaviors, patterns and even giving, in a trustworthy and secure manner. When selecting these trusted providers, you have to ensure that they can demonstrate the following –
- Number one – compliance with industry standards and best practices established by third-party organizations such as the Interactive Advertising Bureau or the IAB, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and their Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Privacy Certification. These demonstrate third-party assessments and compliances already invoked.
- And number two – routine risk assessments, audits and inspections of their own policies and procedures, and of their subcontractors will be part of this compliance.
