Whether you are an entrepreneur or a part of a large enterprise, getting digital right today is critical. But how do you create or maintain policies that empower employees, comply with regulations – such as GDPR and CCPA – reduce social media gaffes and, simultaneously, unlock opportunity?

This handbook helps you to unleash the Power of Digital Policy with field-tested, actionable guidance to minimize risk and maximize opportunity.

Sound digital policies help to manage issues like financial risk from data breaches, but they can also streamline operations, reduce redundant content and produce value. Whether you are in marketing, legal, finance, IT or HR, the worst thing to do is to watch from the sidelines.

Regardless of the industry or your company’s size or stage of policy maturity, this step-by-step roadmap meets you where you are and helps to take your organization where it needs to be.
