Join Jaike Hornreich and Tim Porter of our Risk Advisory Services group as they discuss ways to effectively manage the privacy rights of individuals at the upcoming IASA Conference in Phoenix, Arizona.
A patchwork of privacy regulations (GDPR, CCPA, SOC 2 Privacy, HIPAA/HITRUST to name a few) have been rapidly implemented over the last few years and maintaining compliance has become a significant burden to Companies. Not meeting these regulations can result in severe fines, lawsuits, and reputational damage, and meeting them can require a large upfront investment (both in employee time and expenses).
Based on Skoda Minotti's experience assisting clients with the implementation of security and privacy programs, a large number of overlapping principles and requirements between the frameworks became apparent. The session will surface the similarities between the primary privacy frameworks, teach 10 actions that can be taken immediately to enhance internal privacy controls and meet regulatory requirements and explain the effort involved with implementation, along with the risk of not being prepared.

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) allows manufacturers to bring together, connectivity, remote control, data collection, and analytics to improve operational efficiencies and lower costs. There are opportunities to improve efficiencies across asset management, labor productivity, cost of quality, and safety by leveraging IIoT.
Of all of the information available on IIoT, what is lacking is a clear path forward for getting started, applicability, real-world use cases, ROI, costs associated, benefits and challenges. Businesses need to take a holistic perspective and comprehensive approach that is balanced across the enterprise to continue to realize the benefits of IIoT. Whether that is addressing important issues around finding talent, finding a solution provider, or getting started, the cluster has the technical know-how, leadership, and resources for manufacturers to make decisions and move forward.
Join Dave Mustin as he presents with MAGNET on "Taking That First Step on Your Smart Manufacturing Journey," and Joe Compton as he presents with MCPc, Team NEO and others on "Cybersecurity: Securing Your Smart Manufacturing World" as the Smart Manufacturing Cluster leads manufacturers on their journey of IIoT implementation.

Technology is rapidly moving from a business enabler to the core of the business. New technologies such as “big data” and analytics, the internet of things (IoT), robotics, mobile technology, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity are transforming the way business gets done.
Where do you start? Should you go it alone? How do you navigate the maze of technology and applications, decipher the alphabet soup of acronyms, identify where technology can drive value, and then make informed decisions about integrating it?
Please join Dave Mustin, partner with the firm's Management Consulting Group, as he explores the business implications of technology and their impact on businesses of all sizes and scopes, and presents strategies for charting a path through these disruptive times. This session will focus on addressing technology from an executive perspective while leaving technical jargon to the side.
