IAEE White Paper Addresses Personally Identifiable Information and Data Security
Feb 12, 2018
The International Association of Exhibitions and Events™ (IAEE) released a 17-page report titled, Personally Identifiable Information – Data Security, providing a thorough overview of various aspects and considerations regarding personally identifiable information (PII) for the non-technical reader.
“How data is handled should be a high-level priority for all exhibition industry organizations. Understanding the importance of PII and the many considerations in securing the safety of your organization’s systems is complex,” said IAEE President & CEO David DuBois, CMP, CAE, FASAE, CTA. “Our goal is for this report to serve as a helpful resource for both IT staff, as well as the layperson, in understanding what PII is and steps to take in protecting data.”
Personally Identifiable Information – Data Security resulted from the collaborative work of the Personally Identifiable Information (PII) subcommittee within the IAEE Technologies Committee, and addresses the following topics:
- Types of Data and Categorization
- Governance and Training
- Data Ownership
- Identity Access and Management
- Data in Motion
- Data at Rest
- Internal Security Controls
- Onsite Considerations
“To everyone but the most experienced security professional, cybersecurity seems like the Wild West cloaked in a unique language of its own,” said IAEE Technologies Subcommittee – PII Data Security Chairperson Brian Scott, CIO. “With the critical nature of these risks, it’s important that every professional have at least a cursory understanding of the concepts included under the wide umbrella of information security. To help IAEE members understand these concepts, I was pleased to lead a subcommittee of the Technologies Committee to consolidate and explain the basic fundamentals of data security.”
