Once you implement a data privacy compliance program, the work-does not end. The maintenance phase begins. Some laws and programs require periodic actions. For example, the EU-U. S. Safe Harbor Program requires companies to re-certify annually. Also, lawmakers around the world issue and revise laws constantly. Organizations transform in various ways, for example in mergers and acquisitions, spin-offs, reorganizations, relocations, international expansion, increased headcount and technology acquisitions. Also, employees in charge of privacy compliance may come and go. All of these changes have compliance implications.
