In our “Information Age”, data has grown to be one of the most valuable enterprise resources. This change has substantially impacted large enterprises across verticals, which now face new challenges and risks.

PRMIA Boston has invited seasoned experts to share insights on how data has transformed their business model and risk management strategy. The following topics will be discussed:

  • Data Governance and Security: How is data kept safe to the extent it is maintained in electronic form within systems potentially vulnerable to cyber-attacks?
  • Data Rights & Privacy: How is data collected and disseminated and to what extent are individuals aware of the use and distribution of their personal information? How have the different global regulations shaped this phenomenon?  
  • Data as a Competitive Advantage: How is data being used for marketing, distribution of products and services? How have the new data extraction and processing tools affected decision making within strategic divisions of a company?
