Description

The concept of data privacy (often confused with security), a relatively less focused concept in the IT industry, is being studied in this research. The complexity surrounding data privacy (compared to security), is often over simplified. Combining the literature and inputs from an exploratory study involving senior managers from business critical domains, we present a comprehensive approach towards managing data privacy in an organization. In this privacy framework, a decision support system assists in the development of appropriate actions for information privacy protection. \ \ Privacy is viewed as a key competitive differentiator for organizations in the current and evolving digital markets. The proposed Decision Support System can incorporate suitable algorithms and approaches to facilitate ‘the exploration of different options for enhancing information privacy’ and ‘choose the best option based on the needs of various business scenarios’. With the rapid evolution of technology and regulations, our proposed DSS can help senior managers, mid-level managers and employees cope with privacy and act as an agent to enhance an organization’s privacy practices.
