SCOPE: As a Software Engineering Director I in the Digital Discovery & Marketing Technology space, the teammate will be responsible for leading the delivery of a critical data privacy compliance effort for Truist, under the Enable Trust & Privacy (ETP) program. ETP is a multi-work stream effort focused on delivering immediate regulatory compliance, while developing and later implementing and expanding features to further differentiate the client experience. The continued evolution (or revolution) of legislation, coupled with recent advancements in data technology, and increased attention to related topics such as security and data ethics, has significantly broadened the scope and impact of Privacy. ETP efforts are scoped to define and execution a comprehensive strategy for Truist, taking in to account the legislative landscape, the importance of client trust, and the impact on growth strategies. Data Privacy requirements are evolving quickly due to additional legislation (GDPR, CCPA, CPRA, additional laws under development), political and media attention, and customer expectations. These will be extremely invasive to our business processes and technology environment, and could inhibit our growth strategies (digital, marketing, personalization, etc.) and/or carry significant litigation and reputational exposure if not addressed properly. The initial effort for ETP is around the creation of a Truist Privacy Center, with a pilot planned Q2 of 2022, and full compliance expected by Q1 of 2023. The 3 main goals of the effort are to develop customer control concepts and strategy, inclusive of data privacy and solicitation preferences, develop a platform to capture data privacy / utilization preferences; consolidate with solicitation preference management, and incorporate preferences across applications and processes, aligning with the larger ETP program. Our MVP product suite will provide our clients and prospects with increased transparency, control, and insights into how we use and protect their personal information.
