数据泄露事件频发,美国版GDPR或将出台

过去一年,美国数据泄露事件频发,尤其是脸书-剑桥分析一案引发了大规模的争议和讨论。

近日在美国旧金山召开的Aspen网络峰会上,德州议会代表兼众议院监督与政府改革委员会主席Will Hurd就表示,未来美国也很有可能推出一款类似GDPR的数据监管法案。

Hurd表示,一年前可能大多数美国人还对此无法表示认同,但是2018年的一系列数据泄露事件似乎已经改变了人们的看法。

IT资产管理人国际协会(IAITAM)主席和CEO Barbara Rembiesa博士也认为,类GDPR法案可能对美国的信息科技资产管理产生重大影响。

Rembiesa表示,目前已经有一些企业开始行动起来,通过数据保护专员来应对数据监管新规。

Rembiesa指出,数据保护专员的职责是IT资产管理员的自然延伸。IT资产管理员创建政策流程并利用最佳做法监管各类软件、硬件和移动资产。数据保护专员的责任则意味着以上措施可以被拓展至个人可识别数据,因为这些信息都储存在上述提到的IT资产中。

The Facebook Cambridge Analytica breach and the knowledge that the company was selling private information to companies might mean that Congress will consider a version of the European Union’s General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR).

Representative Will Hurd from Texas, the chairman of the Information Technology Subcommittee of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, told a room of people at the Aspen Cyber Summit in San Francisco that a proposing a version of GDPR was definitely possible.

“One of the things we will be looking at is GDPR. Is it working, is it not working, is it something that we may be moving to?” Hurd said. “A year ago, the answer would have been not ‘no,’ but ‘hell, no.’ I think more people are open to that now because of some of the breaches.”

Dr. Barbara Rembiesa, the president and CEO of the International Association of IT Asset Managers (IAITAM), said that if GDPR is reconsidered, it’ll have a huge effect on information technology asset management in the United States.

“The year 2018 has been a difficult one for Facebook. Between testifying before both domestic and international courts as well as the bad publicity surrounding the Cambridge Analytica scandal, one would think that Facebook would be careful how it handles and distributes personal information,” Rembiesa said. “This time, it turns out Facebook was selling access to your personal data. This includes private conversations.”

That private info, called personally identifiable information (PII), includes data like usernames and email addresses but also photos and Facebook Messenger conversations. The information was supposed to help companies advertise to Facebook’s users, but it created a scandal instead.

Rembiesa said it would behoove the U.S. to follow the EU’s lead through the use of data protection officers to handle compliance of new rules, and that some companies are already doing just that.

“The good news is that organizations that have mature IT Asset Management programs already have the professionals needed under their roof. The roles and responsibilities required of a data protection officer are a natural addition for an IT asset manager,” Rembiesa explained. “IT asset managers produce policies and processes and utilize best practices that care for software, hardware and mobile assets. As data protection officers, those practices would extend to personally identifiable information, since such information is stored on those assets.”
