Protecting Cisco data—including customer, partner, and employee information—is everyone's responsibility.
The program was built based on addressing four strategic considerations.
To address these considerations, we gathered input from all areas of our enterprise. We developed our guiding principle.
When building our Data Protection Program, these three core tenets shaped our work and helped us stay focused despite the complexities.
Data Protection is a lifestyle for Cisco. It’s part of our DNA. It’s like when someone eats healthy and exercises regularly in hopes of avoiding risks of illness or injury. We want to help ensure Data Protection is built into our culture and is a part of our daily work-lives, so we can avoid the risks of bad behaviors or breaches.
In addition to protecting data, Cisco focuses on the authorized use of personal data in our policies, processes, technology, and people interactions. Privacy Engineering (PE), built on the foundation of our secure development lifecycle, highlights personal data and its required controls and protections beginning with the initial concept of an offering, application, or product. PE then works through the offerings lifecycle to design, implement, verify, and operate as an authorized user of personal data.
The Data Protection Program offers comprehensive, enterprise-wide tools, processes, and trainings that deliver on the promise that Cisco is a trusted company. We use the program to remain compliant with global policies and regulations imposed by government agencies. It also helps to ensure we are doing our due diligence to secure the data assets of our customer’s, partner’s and Cisco employees.
