Privacy, Regulations, and Cybersecurity: The Essential Business Guide

Keeping up with swiftly changing technology and business landscapes is no easy task. This book is your guide to understanding what “privacy” really means in a corporate environment: how privacy is different from cybersecurity, why privacy is essential for your business, and how to build privacy protections into your overall cybersecurity plan.

Author Chris Moschovitis provides down-to-earth, actionable advice on how to avoid dangerous privacy leaks and protect your valuable data assets. He walks you through our evolving definitions of privacy, from the ancient world all the way to the General Law on Data Protection (GDPR). He then explains—in friendly, accessible language—how to orient your preexisting cybersecurity program toward privacy, and how to make sure your systems are compliant with current regulations.

Key Benefits:

  • Learn how to apply lessons from the GDPR and other landmark laws
  • Remain compliant and even get ahead of the curve, as privacy grows from a buzzword to a business must
  • Learn how to protect what’s of value to your company and your stakeholders, regardless of business size or industry
  • Understand privacy regulations from a business standpoint, including which regulations apply and what they require
  • Think through what privacy protections will mean in the post-COVID environment

Whether you’re new to cybersecurity or already have the fundamentals, this book will help you design and build a privacy-centric, regulation-compliant cybersecurity program.

“The more we connect the world, the more we are enmeshed in it. How can companies and other organizations take advantage of the opportunities connection creates, without exploiting or invading what should be none of their business? How can regulators see and draw the line? What can individuals do to be both open and closed? Chris Moschovitis explores these topics with great technical expertise and a strong moral sensibility. This book is, as the subtitle says, an essential business guide.”

“Privacy and cybersecurity are ‘religions’ for most of us involved in their practice, and as Chris Moschovitis tell us, ‘a religion must have a god.’ His book takes us on a journey from the God of Silence to Samuel Warren and Louis Brandeis through to the Privacy-By-Design godlike character of Dr. Ann Cavoukian and is a must-read for anyone concerned with the proliferation of data and its use, the convergence of cybersecurity and privacy, and the need for privacy-centric security programs. It will help you to change your sliver of the world!”
