A day in the life
The ‘day-to-day’ aspect of this role will be to assess systems, products, and features for opportunities to build customer trust and compliance with global privacy obligations. As part of this you will provide proactive guidance for upcoming tech builds and roadmaps, work with senior leaders on acceptable business risk when applicable, and track remediation actions as needed. You will be responsible for knowing the ins and outs of these projects.
